In structured cabling, a cable distributor (KV) is an optional device in horizontal cabling, i.e. in floor
cabling. The cable distributor is located between the floor
distributorand the subscriber connection (TA) and is used to convert a multi-pair TP cable
toseveral two- or four-pair cables or optical fibres for the connection boxes
. A cable distributor has fixed cables, is therefore not manoeuvrable and has only passive components.
