One of our customers moved into a new location. They had existing CAT5 wiring and jacks in place, however the wiring went in a conduit going to the floor above which they have no access to. The previous tenant of this office space apparently had office space on multiple floors or offices within the building, and their network room was located elsewhere in the building.
Since there was a centralized location where all of the wiring in their office came together, which happened to be fairly closely to where the cable company installed their cable modem, the wires for the jacks that are going to be used by this customer were cut out, and punched down into a small 12 port patch panel.

The black box on the left is a surge protector to connect power to the router.
