Jacks

Jacks "terminate" the in-wall portion of your network wiring.  "Patch" cables then connect the in-wall wiring to equipment such as computers, printers and routers.

If you want a color coordinated network (which tremendously simplifies identifying network links in the future), consider buying two of each color jack per link (one at the client device, the other at your customized patch panel).

Networks with more than 7 links will have to consider other link identification schemes (such as labeling) due to the limited number of discrete colors for jacks.  Interestingly, not all colors cost the same, although the price difference is minimal.
