I am remodeling an office and need to move the network wiring quite a bit. The wiring cabinet is pretty well centrally located and only one level. My issue is one POD of workstations is 8 stations. I will have to dig a trench to run the wiring as power poles are not allowed. I'll need to run 8 network wires running the length of the building and down the wall and into the trench and up to the workstations. It is below the 300 foot limit, but I wondering if I could just run one wire and use a gigabit switch at the "Pod" of 8 stations. What if any would be the drawback to that?
