I'm planning the wiring for new office space. 125 Cat5 cables for voice (plus 125 for data) from the offices will terminate on patch panels in a rack. 1 pair lines from the phone switch terminate on a110 block mounted on a plywood board about 8 feet away. I'm trying to figure out the best way to cross-connect the two that will make it easy to make changes when folks change offices.
I'm familiar with both RJ45 and 110 patch cords (in this case, I could use the 1 pair clips) and I presume that I could get patch cords with one of each. But I'd really rather not have 125 (expensive) patch cords running from the rack to the wall. Please suggest some other options I should consider.
