Connect devices to cable outlet
In addition to the standard 2- or 3-hole cable outlets, you can also use GCC outlets for the Internet connection.
What are GCC outlets?
GCC stands for «generic communication cabling», also known as «structured cabling».
Structured cabling is a combined cable type used for transmitting various multimedia services (images, voice and data). Consequently, you don't need separate connection outlets for TV, radio, Internet and phone. Structured cabling is installed in new buildings, often as part of the in-house distribution system, and transmits the signals from the home distributor/multimedia box to the connection outlets in the apartment.
Which GCC outlet do you have?
There are two types of GCC outlets that you may find in your home: GCC with coaxial cable and GCC with coaxial adapter.
Connecting your devices to the Sunrise Internet service can generally be done with the coaxial cable included. Connect the coaxial cable to the cable outlet. In addition, connect the LAN cable to the GCC outlet.
Connect the coaxial cable to the cable outlet. In addition, connect the LAN cable to the GCC outlet.
If you need help with the connection, please ask your building administrator about a possible solution. If, for example, removing the cabinet door of the home distributor/multimedia box doesn't disturb you, you can unscrew it to improve the Wi-Fi connection.

To connect your devices to the Sunrise Internet, a coaxial adapter recommended by the GCC manufacturer is required.
The connection to the GCC outlet is only possible with a coaxial adapter (usually called «balun»). This can be ordered from the building administrator or from the GCC manufacturer. In addition, connect the LAN cable to the GCC outlet.
In order to distribute the LAN signal to all rooms, an additional switch must be installed in the home distributor box. This should ideally be done by a qualified technician.
