Is there an ethernet switch with hidden jacks on the back?

I'm setting up a nice AV system.  All the components have ethernet.  I would like to use a rack-mounted switch, but one with the RJ45 jacks in the back of the switch, so that no wires are visible on the front.

Is there such a thing?  I've seen routers with this arrangement, but no switches.

Thanks

Have you thought of mounting a switch in the rack backwards. Putting the ears on the back instead of the front? Only downside is the power cable will be in the front.

I appreciate the suggestions.  The Belden was out of my price range, and difficult to find.

I found a MIL-S8TA by Transition Networks.  8 Port, unmanaged, with a Rack kit.
