Home Network Wiring
If you want to set up a home network, Graf Electric can run your CAT5e and CAT6 Ethernet cables, install wall ports, and set up a patch panel.
Network Cables vs Wi-Fi
You’ll get the best performance and speed by running network cables, especially if you plan on doing a lot of streaming on your local network. Even if you’ll be setting up a wireless network, both the broadband modem and wireless router have to connect to a cable somewhere. And, if you want to connect devices that are Ethernet-ready, you’ll need multiple cables.
Running Network Cables
Adding Ethernet connections to the kitchen, family room and bedrooms is not a DIY task. Running the cables through the walls or crawl space requires special equipment, and knowledge of how to avoid any pipes or electrical lines that are already in these areas. Graf Electric’s experienced technicians will add all the wiring for your home network and keep it hidden whenever possible. We’ll connect the wall ports or Ethernet jacks, so all you have to do is connect your equipment.
Patch Panel Wiring
If your home networking system is going to include a lot of wall ports, Graf Electric can set up a patch panel to help manage the cables coming from all the network ports throughout your home. The patch panel is centrally located, usually near the home server and/or the switch or router.
