I am wiring a department in an enterprise environment with cat6 cabling. My server room will be in a separate room from the patch panel . All the wiring will be terminated at a patch panel at the other side of the building.
I want to keep the switch in the server room but I do not want to run every port back to the patch panel. Is there a way to run all the signals from the patch panel to the server room. The only thing I can think of is a fiber channel but then I need a device in the patch panel room and it defeats the purpose. From some feedback it appears to run a remote switch at the patch panel and uplink it to a switch in the server room with a dedicated high speed drop. I would like to eliminate and equipment in the patch panel room but cannot find any other work around.
