Here is a pic of the "main" wiring termination point in the back of the basement. I did all the wiring myself, with the exception of the Telus installer who brought in the fiber line. The fiber line is the black ClearCurve wire dropping down from the top right hand of the picture.
The ATX case on the shelf is running Hyper-V (Windows Server 2012 R2), which runs various VMs. Its got 2x 4TB drives (raid 1) to backup other devices in the house, and 2x 3TB (raid 1) for various storage, and 2x 256GB SSD (raid 1) for boot/OS VHDX files, and 16GB of RAM. It's running a database, web server, network monitoring software, source control software, etc. It's convenient to place this box next to the main switch since it has multiple NICs, which is advantageous for a VM host.
The 24-port gigabit switch is the "main" switch in the house. It supports SNMP so that I can monitor network activity
, and it supports STP so that I can connect multiple wired Sonos devices without getting broadcast storms due to multiple network paths that are created by that configuration.
Sitting on the left of the 24-port router are two HDHomeRun devices that are connected to a OTA antenna (so, 4 tuners). On the right is the Telus "fiber modem" (aka ONT), which is powered by the white UPS which is behind the upper-left of the HP printer.
The "fiber modem" is then connected to a port on the top patch panel, which goes to another point in the house where a Asus RT-N66U is running. Having two cable runs to each room is very helpful in these cases because it allows you to place a standard wireless router close to the middle of your house to maximize WiFi coverage, instead of having to locate it in the middle of the basement. This is something that is difficult to do if you only have one ethernet drop in the room where you want to locate your router.
On the bottom shelf you'll see a CyberPower UPS on the left, and a old (now retired) HP MediaSmart server on the right. The UPS is powering the server, the 24-port switch and the HDHomeRuns.
