The Problem:

A large house had a lot of cables that were run around the house and brought back to one point in a  utility/office  room. Cat5e (network) and RG6 (coax) were run but were never terminated properly. Some of these cables were used to feed satellite to a couple of TV's but most were left unterminated. The wifi in the house was supplied by the one wifi router. This had limited coverage and a large portion of the house had poor wifi coverage. Also, a gym was being constructed in the garage and wifi would be needed here also.

The Solution:

Firstly, all the cables were terminated into patch panels...the cat5e onto a couple of network patch panels and the coax cables were terminated onto their own panel. As there was limited space in the press, we had to use 2 samll cabintes to fit into the space. We used one cabinet for all network devices and the second cabinet for all the coax (TV) devices...skybox, amplifiers and spiltters.

With all cables neatly and clearly terminated, its very easy to use the cables for a large number of requirements, e.g. sound systems, smart homes, automation, wifi etc.

To improve the wifi coverage around the house, we installed a number of small wifi Access points. These were mounted on the walls as the cables had been run to these points. This provided a very neat solution and a solution which gave full wifi coverage around the house.

To get wifi out to the garage, we used a pair of small wireless units to transmit the wifi signal. In the garage we installed a standard wifi router to provide the coverage.
