Network design help: Upgrade fiber connections to gigabit
We will be moving our office to another building on the same complex but leaving all servers, etc in the old building. We already have an old fiber connection between the two buildings as some computer users have always been there. They can connect to our servers but its a bit of a slow connection. In some places we are still using 10Mb hubs!
We have 2 D-Link Switches with fiber modules in them, DES-102F with SC type connectors. This fiber link runs under the car park so I would like to avoid running any more cables and prefer to use the fiber if possible.
To improve perfomance for the users who will be moving to the new building I would at least like to upgrade the connection between the buildings to gigabit.
Is this possible using the existing fiber or will these have to be upgraded?
If it cant be used will a standard CAT5 cable between 2 gigabit switches (two cables for redundancy) be good enough for approx 95 PC's in one building to connect to 7 servers in another building? The CAT5 cable would be no longer than 150 metres.
