Why and how use a patch panel?

We're nearing the end of redeveloping our warehouse, finally I've got myself a new server room. Granted we're only a small business but I'd like to do it properly.

So, currently we have a mini call centre in which the server cabinet is also housed, the new setup will have the server cabinet in it's own room 50m away from the call centre. In this circumstance, why would I need to use a patch panel and finally, how would I use a patch panel?
