We are setting up a production room with 6 high capacity laser printers/presses. they will be connecting to an imposition server and the bandwith between the server and laser workstations will be maxing out on a copper connection. We were going to run a fiber connection directly from the swith in the server room so a switch in the printer/press room. Somebody told me that fiber wouldnt be neccessary unless the distance was greater. This is only about 50 ft. If all presses are drawing bandwidth at the same time wouldndt fiber be better?
Any ideas appreciated.
