What is a Data point or ‘Ethernet’ point?
A Data point is simply a hard wired data connection, run between the two devices in order to allow them to communicate. Normally this is done between an Internet Modem and Personal Computer.Data points are usually run through your home using ‘Cat5 or Cat6 Ethernet’ cable, via cavity walls and roof space a neat wall plate at each end. This is much more affordable than you might expect! You can have a high speed Ethernet data line installed from just $189- between two rooms in a standard single level home.
Other uses for data points
More often now there are other devices which require a data connection directly to a Modem, such as: SMART TVs, New Media Players such as Apple TV, Bluray players, and PVRs. Soon most visual devices will require internet connection. While this can be often done with a wireless connection, they work better, faster and more reliably with a hard wired data point.
New technology is now available which enables AV devices (such as Bluray players and other devices) to be distributed to one or more rooms throughout the home via data lines. These very intelligent ‘Media Hub’ and ‘Matrix Switch’ devices convert HDMI signals into Cat6 cable which is run through the home. The benefit is this type of cable can also carry IR signals from remote controls back from other rooms to the device (eg: Bluray) being distributed.
