When the house was getting built I made sure to get power and a phone jack run into the top of the linen cupboard in anticipation of networking, storage and home automation requirements .
It quickly became quite a mess with cables hanging everywhere so it was decided it was time to clean it up and get it into a rack.
From top to bottom:
24 port patch panel
Linksys 24 port smart switch
3RU case containing Netgear ADSl modem, Router Station Pro and PSU’s
1RU blanking plate with 3x 20w per channel class D amps.
(To Drive Bathroom, kitchen and deck speakers)
Still a bit more to do on cable tidying and I’m going to get some blanking plates to cover the bottom up and then possibly build a second rack next to it to house the NAS and drives.
