network cableing between rooms
Posted on 2008-06-25
Currently we have an office conencted by cat5e. all stations are connected to one central location point where Cisco 2960 switches, servers, firewalls ect reside. we are expanding and will be taking over new space which is down the hall. ( which is not more than 100m). this space we are taking is an office that an old company has so it is wired and has its own central location(server room) that all the stations lead to.
my question is instead of re inventing the wheel and running many cables from our existing server room to all the station points in the new space, what would be the best method of connecting the two rooms? there will be about 25 connections in the new space/
