Expanding office in same building - need advice

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-07
Hi experts -  We're a small business with about 20 desktops and 5 servers.  The desktops are connected to a DELL Powerconnect 3324 and the servers to 3Comm Gigabit switch.   We are planning on expanding to the 2nd floor of the building next month and need connectivity to the same networks.  What is the best way to accomplish this?  I'm thinking we should run a couple CAT5's upstairs from the gigabit uplink on the Powerconnect to a switch we will purchase for upstairs. Thoughts?
