Register to read the introduction… Both are inexpensive and can route up to 100 meters between backbones and switches… other components like computers, phones and routers.
They have several improvements, including better insulation and thinner wires that provide a higher signal-to-noise ratio, and are better suited for environments in which there may be higher electromagnetic interference. Some Cat 6 cables are available in shielded twisted pair (STP) forms or UTP forms. For most applications, Cat 6 cable is adequate for gigabit Ethernet, and it is much less expensive than Cat 7 cable.
You can only go 100 meters with normal Ethernet cable, which is fine is DesignIT’s case because the office is less than 100 square feet. The typical connection from the switch in the reception area ceiling to a cubical or the conference room would only need 35-40 feet from the switch out to the edge of service (the wall) and standard ceilings are 7-9 feet in height.
Fiber can go distances but can be very expensive and delicate to install. Mice and rats like to chew on fiber also. Placing every 80-100 meters should help you include the entire network and offices. Luckily, this business is small and we don’t need fiber

While some companies have made the change, they are still very few and far in between. The primary basis that some companies have used to justify their switch was the impending depletion of available IP addresses. While this threat seemed feasible, recent trends have shown that the necessity to find additional resources is still very slim. There's also the obvious cost of the switch itself. Depending on the scale of the company, the switch could consume a copious amount of time and manpower not just to implement the updated protocol, but to purchase any new networking devices that may be needed to upgrade. A good portion of firewalls, routers, and VPNs wouldn't be supported by IPv6 and would at least need a software update to even be functional. So, unless the company is operating on a gargantuan scale and requires the consumption of a ton of public IP addresses (which would be difficult to fathom for all intents and purposes), a switch to IPv6 is just not …show more content…
In my area, Cable, DSL, Satellite, and even Dial Up connections are offered. I chose DSL for the simple fact that connections speeds aren't bogged down by network usage. This rationale is based on the fact that DSL connections do not depend on how many users are on the connection, but rather on proximity to the source of the connection. In my opinion, a business can chose either DSL or cable ISP, it’s a matter of preference and cost. Many people in my area are served by Comcast's cable internet connection. That being said, at peak usage times, the connection would be bogged down by everyone in my neighborhood who is trying to check their Facebook pages. Given that I have DSL, my connection is stable regardless of how many people are on the
