Most of Data Center have already Patch Panel installed. It's will be Rj-45 or optical depend on the type of dc. Example Your firewall is in Rack No.1 and you servers are in Rack No.10. You should ask patch panel status.

If DC don't have responsible for cabling. Depend on distance between Firewall and servers, cable may be difference. Distance is more than 50 meters, i would prefer optical cabling.

Hope this help
