Cat5 Network Switch?

Specs: Windows XP
I see what appears to be a punchdown block with a CAT5 label on the cover and Cat5 lines going in, but no switch or jacks. This is a new building, and I'm thinking it's an all in one device where the cable modem can be placed in the office with any Cat5 outlet used to connect the entire network. Am I nuts?

Forget it. Got it worked out. The downstairs area of this office building was all punched down to that block. I'd have to tone it out, and put in a patch panel along with moving modem, and router into that room to activate the cat5 sockets in the office.
