This integrated faceplate meets the ANSI/TIA/EIA 570-A standard recomendation that for each (Grade 1) cabled location, atleast one Category 5 cables and one 75-ohm Coaxial Cable
connection to each location. For each cabled location, grade 1 provides a generic cabling system that meets the minimum requirements for basic telecommunications services. It consists of one integrated CAT 5e data port with 110 punch down termination and one (CATV) connection. The standard recommends one of these types of wall plates installed in every room of a residence.
Coaxial cable is a cable consisting of an inner conductor, surrounded by a tubular insulating layer typically made from a flexible material with a high dielectric constant, all of which is then surrounded by another conductive layer (typically of fine woven wire for flexibility, or of a thin metallic foil), and then finally covered again with a thin insulating layer on the outside. The term coaxial comes from the inner conductor and the outer shield sharing the same geometric axis. Coaxial cables are often used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals. In a hypothetical ideal coaxial cable the electromagnetic field carrying the signal exists only in the space between the inner and outer conductors. Practical cables achieve this objective to a high degree. A coaxial cable provides protection of signals from external electromagnetic interference, and effectively guides signals with low emission along the length of the cable.
