Patch Panel Recomendations

Hi Experts,

We are looking to install a new 48 port patch panel that is compatible with Cat 6 but it seems the prices seem to range so much between products...

Ive seen others for 600 +

Just to let you know, the ones we had an issue with were the grounded ones from Cylix. We also use Leviton's and once we switched the connections from the Cylix to them the PoE worked fine.

One thing to keep in mind is if you need PoE.  Some patch panels don't support it.  We ran into that.

ahhhh... yes we need PoE... I did not realize the patch panel needed to support that... just the switch.

Thanks pony
