cable distribution point
Explanation:
Brandstetter gives "tow spinning" for "Kabelspinnen".

Not suitable in this context, it refers to textile industry.

Kabelspinne is a distribution point, Brandstetter gives "cable distribution point" for "Kabelverteilung" and that's exactly what "Kabelspinne" stands for. The "-spinne" part of Kabelspinne refers to a cobweb like distribution.

Possible alternatives:
cable distribution system

I would not use cable distribution box in this case. Although a common expression, "box" is not covered by the German source text.

centralised distribution systems


Explanation:
Star distribution systems

I have searched on Google (see adresses below) to find out what it is exactly.

It is a device that is capable of centralising the connections from some signal (the mains in the google example) to other devices.

It is organised somewhat like a spider's web (Spinnwebe) i.e. all cables are arriving to a central point. However, there are no other interconnections

If the translation is not correct, I think at least the description is correct.
