home run - Computer Definition
An inside cable and wire star configuration in which each telephone or data jack connects directly to a common point, such as a demarcation point (demarc), wiring closet, or key service unit (KSU). The alternative is a shared loop that connects multiple jacks to one or two pairs that connect to the demarc or KSU. See also daisy chain and loop.
A cable that begins at a central distribution point, such as a hub or PBX, and runs to its destination station without connecting to anything else. Home runs are used in star topologies.
