Scenario: 2 office spaces within the same building (approx 50m apart), 8 workstations in office 1 and 6 workstations in office 2. Every workstation will have 2 network connections (1 for data, 1 for a phone).
The data network I am happy with - 1 switch in each office with a link between them, each workstation connects its local switch.
My question is can I achieve a similar dual star topology for the phone system ? i.e. one cat5 link cable between offices instead of having to run 6 separate cables from office 2 back to office 1 where the phone system will be located (pictured) ?
If so, how would I implement it ? What hardware would be required ?
Thanks in advance
