The company I work for is expanding to a new office on the same building but one floor below. I wondering how best to connect the two network together in order to have one single network.
Upstairs we have all internal servers (NAS, domain, etc) and the endpoint for the Internet connection. Downstairs there will only be desktop clients. Ideally clients of both offices would share the same access to servers and Internet. The switches are HP v1910 on both offices. There will be around 15 users active per office, at peak times.
If I run a cable between the two switches, that would be around 70 meters long. Unfortunately the cable will have to pass near electricity cables.
Could I achieve decent performance with a couple of cat6 cables? Is it worth to invest on fibre cables?
