While I'm relatively comfortable in designing a LAN with CAT6, I'm trying to get a place to start evaluating using fiber to create the LAN for a our new building and try to build in some excess capacity for the next decade. Other than phone issues which I have at least an inkling of some of the copper to fiber problems, what other areas should I watch out for? NIC's would be a problem. Switches are a problem. The major advantage I have is size; this is a 8,000 ft building in which we will use 4000 to start for our 25 employees which will increase to about 40 over the next 5 years. All use the network extensively (insurance operation, paperless, image transfer, etc). Any thoughts would be appreciated.
