Phone distribution in small business and residental applications

One of the best ways to distribute phone lines in residential and small business applications is to use some kind of punchdown block in combination with a star (also called home run) topology. While the site is not completely devoid of commercial aims (they do sell equipment) the Phone Man site has great explantions of how to wire 66 and 110 blocks for phone distribution (when you don’t have a PBX type system and simply wish for all phone lines to go to all jacks).

For what it’s worth I recently bought a DSL splitter from the site for a recent project and highly recommend installing a centralized DSL splitter such as the Wilcom PS15-I3S and doing away with all those individual DSL filters around your house.
