I have a room with workstations which needs to be wired. Instead of running cables from IDF directly to the workstations, can I run the cables to another IDF with a patchpanel which would be mounted in that same room where the workstations are and then wiring the cables directly from that patch panel? It would be a lot easier to run the IDF to IDF then IDF directly to the workstations. Is that allowed in the industry?
IDF patchpanel -> workstations
IDF patchpanel -> IDF patchpanel -> workstations
