Now this is how a small LAN in a tiny terminal closet should look. The switches are mounted in the rack, along with three rows of Panduit cat-5 patch jacks. (Lots of room for upgrading the station wire.) Below those is a 24-jack cat-3 patch panel cabled to the old telephone backboard to deliver EOTP to those who's cables were terminated on the older 66 blocks. Also for picking up dial tone to send out on the cat-5 cables. The new LAB with it's rack has a digital telephone connected to the PBX on the 2nd floor via the existing telephone cabling. All patch cables on the rack are neatly kept in Panducts.
