How to Choose Best Faceplate or LAN Wall Socket or Wall Plate?


“Faceplate” Smart Networking Infrastructure requires smart technologies to deliver the best networking experience. Today, smart technologies have become an integral part of the system of the world and are reshaping our corporate life, social life and personal life. Advancement in these technologies allows us to speed up all the processes in order to deliver better outputs. Better networking experience can only be achieved with high-quality, high-performing and reliable networking equipment which plays a crucial role for seamless network connectivity.

One of the important segments of any networking infrastructure is Networking Faceplate, also known as Wall Plates or LAN Wall Sockets, which are metal or plastic plates used for Cat5 cable, Cat5e, Cat6 or Cat6a ethernet cabling installation. Outlet Covers or Networking Wall Plates are specially used in new installations where concealed cabling is required to keep and organise network cables properly. For the networking infrastructure of commercial or residential buildings, faceplate from AE Connect are an ideal choice.

Networking Wall Plates are fixed on a wall or where required and the keystone jack is fixed in the hole so that the networking modular jack is exposed outside to attach the patch cord of computers. Inside of Networking Wall Plates, the inner part of the keystone jack lies that connects to the longer network cable. As a great input and output tool, choosing the right wall plates is necessary and it mainly depends on the application, the number of gangs and the number of switch openings.

Why Faceplates Are Essential & How To Add Them?

Networking faceplates or wall plates provide a secure ethernet connection and only require a small piece of cable from the computer to run on the front panel. To create an Ethernet socket by using the faceplate, pull the cable through the hole in the wall and use a cable stripper to remove the insulation of the cable, if it is a patch cable remove the connector first.

Different types of faceplate are available from 1-port to 6-port and more, which can also be in different colours depending on the suitability of locations. AE Connect provides an excellent design of network cable faceplate. To balance the increasing cost across many industries, we continue to provide networking equipment at competitive market prices. For the same reason, we’ve developed front panel designs that are easier and more cost-effective to manufacture and inventory.

Networking Wall plates are a simple but essential part of cable installation. All our latest faceplates provide enhanced functionality and their designs include the labelling of the ports that allow users to identify the characteristics of wall plates. Our Networking Faceplates are available in a number of configurations, with single, double and quad outlets for Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6 or Cat6a network category inserts. Anyone can punch down BT telephone cables or network cables into a faceplate using a punch-down IDC tool without soldering. All our networking wall plates come with cable-identification labels and mounting screws.

How to Locate the Network Cable Faceplates Properly?

As per the industry cabling standards, each location should be provided with a minimum of one work area outlet location. An outlet location is generally a Networking Faceplate that supports two or more networking modular outlets or connectors.

Each location should be supported by a minimum of two approved horizontal cables and two modular outlets/connectors. Therefore each outlet of connection must terminate one approved type of horizontal media.

Depending on the need, work area outlets can be placed in different locations for each area and the exact location is a function of the horizontal pathway connecting the area to the Telecom Room. Various types of locations are used to install the work area outlets as follows:

  • On the wall
  • On the floor
  • On a power pole
  • On the modular furniture
