Structured wiring box height


I am working on doing runs right now of Cat5e data, Coax, and Cat5e for telephone (different color line)... and I have them all coming back to one location in the basement... I have a structured wiring box from Legrand/On-q its about 24 inches high and fits into a stud cavity... I was wondering how high this box should be mounted? Is there any standard height for mounting stuff like this? Or should it just be at eye level so you can easily do work in it if needed? or mounted about the same height as an electrical service panel?

Typically our installers will mount this about the same height as a breaker panel. Don't forget - there should be two knockouts in the bottom for single gang receptacle boxes.
