Modern Electrical Wiring Solutions

Wiring a modern home is becoming an interesting process. With new wireless technologies being introduced, never has there been so many different wiring configurations available. One new wiring method is the hub wire. The hub wire consolidates all of the homes wiring. Instead of having many separate wires (for power, telephone, cable or satellite TV, computer) all daisy-chained through your walls. A network connects everything into a single, central hub. The hub wire then runs directly from this hub to each room, where modular outlets provide access to services. Though more expensive than traditional wiring, these conductors are better able to handle the demands of high-speed transmissions -- resulting in less interference and clearer reception. Newly introduced wireless networking products can connect computers, printers, or other devices, as can kits that use the existing electrical or telephone wiring in your house.
