Quote from: cloyd on March 02, 2016, 03:54:44 PMWhat I need for the PBX end of the termination is a patch panel (or whatever) that goes from Cat5E to RJ-11. It is the RJ-11 that is slowing me down. It is easy to find them for RJ-45. When I search, I get lots of products without sufficient description for me to know whether it is what I need. Loads of Telco/IT talk.

Quote from: mentalstampede on March 02, 2016, 05:46:42 PMHow many extensions will you be using? You could use the same type of system at both ends; You'd use the same RJ11 keystone jacks, and the same punchdown tool. Keystone plates are available in many sizes. I have seen them with up to 12 ports. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DDH3X5Q/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687662&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B004FUYYWG&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1GAESQWKH870KSDAZJZA
