Wallplates and Ports
All wallplates should be located with 20 feet of a work station, desk and phone. The height of the PennNet wallplate should be 18 inches from the floor, and should not be placed behind furniture or other equipment so that the wallplate is accessible to support personnel.
Port IdentificationThe ID for each port is located in upper left-hand corner of the wallplate. This ID should be presented when requesting a new service, or when reporting problems with an exiting service. This information will help PennNet customer service representatives determine the current status of your wallplate.
Each PennNet wallplate is divided into 4 quadrants. Each quadrant can hold two ports, allowing for a maximum of 8 ports on a wallplate. Please note that one video wire takes up an entire quadrant, so a wallplate with video can hold only 7 wires. Each port has a unique identifier that begins with a 3-character building code and ends with a "u" value (ie. u1 for the first port, u2 for the second port, etcetera).
When a port is active, a colored icon is inserted into the wallplate above the port.
