I recently started a new position and upon investigation it appears all data drops from the floor first gets punched down on a 110 block, cross connected to another 110 block and then connects to a patch panel. I was horrified and surprised that this setup was even working. They are using un-shielded cross connect cables between the two 110 blocks.
I started searching the web and it appears that some shops consider this acceptable. I would think there would be cross talk issues up the wazoo. Am I wrong? Is this type of setup acceptable?
