Internet distribution and management

Last Modified: 2015-10-19
One of our branch offices is located in a business park with several other businesses, our company is the only company in the business park that is currently linked up to a direct fibre internet link (100 Mbps).
My directors would like to distribute this to the rest of the business park.
The idea is to create a private network within the park via fibre and UTP, basically fibre would be used as the backbone link between buildings and UTP inside the buildings to each business, managed switches would be installed in each building.
Each company would then be offered an option of required speed, basically what any ISP would do just on a much smaller scale

How would we be able to manage this so that each company remains isolated from the other and maintain a stable network, what type of switches would you recommend, what other hardware would we require?
