I’m moving all my network equipment to a central location inside a closet. I will mount the switch on the wall, and have about 14 Cat6 cables passing through the interior wall and going in different directions. What's the best way to do this? I have seen passthrough wall plates like this, but I don't like that they allow airflow and a potential entry for mice or other critters.
For smaller installations like in each room, I would use keystone plates like this. So I could mount four of these right next to each other. Is that the best approach?
