Our client is building a new 100K square ft, two story facility. There is one server room on each floor and a fiber link will be installed to connect both server rooms. In case of the failure of the fibre link, we have to find a redundancy for this fibre link. Should we install a 2nd fiber link or just a CAT6 cable would be sufficient?
The switches we will be installing are all Ubiquiti UniFi switches in this building. And the switch on both end of the fibre link can be UBIQUITI US-16-XG

Thanks!!
