Just a quick note, I'm running cat6a - there's 9 runs to every room. The actual size of the cables is much bigger than non-shielded so there was hardly sufficient space in the walls.

 

 

 

 

I hope that is a 2 story house... Those runs are a nightmare to chase in the future.

 

 

 

 

Already have that covered - all linings are plywood so simply unscrew to access cables.

Out of curiosity, why do you need 9 runs for every room? I would think noone need more than 2 apart from the lounge where you have your tv, entertainment unit etc. 

 

Everyone seems talks about future proof, I still didn't get how long we are talking about? surprisedcry

And is that wood 6x2, or just a trick of the photo angle? look awfully large for standard 4x2?

i'm wondering the same... you can always use cheap switches at each room that needs more than 2 (including the lounge).

For me future proof means to use conduits to be simply able to exchange a standard double wiring to a wall jack with i.e. 2x 10G+ fiber (or what ever will be next). In some of the currently not used conduits, there is a blank wire in each to easily tow-in the relevant cable (or fiber) when needed later on. To add flexibility, use Keystone (compatible) modules - it doesn't cost much more but you can mix ethernet jacks (with or without PoE) beside a fiber jack in the same outlet (up to three).

 

I use 2 (located diagonally and on opposite sides) doubles per room and 1 single in the ceiling for APs. Normally one double could be sufficient but when the use of a room changes in the future, using two prevents to cross a room with a long, losely wire/fiber to a linked equipment in the other corner along the windows/entrances and to have some spare/mixed technology (i.e. a wired fax/phone when needed).

 

You can save money if you use blind covers when you like to install only the needed wires and outlets at the moment, but you can easily upgrade later on with low effort.
