When putting Ethernet cables for an office there are two ways to put the cables:
- From the rack patch panel a cable to each end-point (workstation).
- From the rack patch panel a cable to each room/floor switch, and from the switch another cable to the end-point (workstation).
About distances, from rack to the more far room there are near 100 meters. Inside a room no more than 15 meters.
We prefer the second option because is cheaper but no sure about performance issues.
Any suggestion? Thanks!
