Re: My addition will take almost 2 miles of Cat 6

said by pandora:

Only active Cat 6 cable will be energized and connected to a switch. The goal is to be able to relocate furniture within the room.

I anticipate 5-10 active wired connections per room, but wished to have the ability to move furniture around as desired.

The plan is to expand the LAN with 48 port PoE capable Cisco managed LAN switches as needed. Initially two 48 port switches will be installed with room for up to 6 in the main network rack.

How big are these rooms that they need that many drops? I would think 6 RG6 and 12 CAT6 per room would be a more reasonable number. For switching maybe a modular chassis would be better suited. Cisco or HP Procurve, populate chassis as needed.
