We're getting new computers with gigabit capability and a new switch for the office.
Is replacement of all cabling and receptacles required in order to achieve gigabit speeds? I've been asked this question, and would like to have some idea of what's achievable.
What speeds can we likely achieve with A) no wiring upgrade, B) upgrading patch cables only (from computer to receptacle), C) upgrading patch cables and RJ-45 receptacles?
I realize that, with any accuracy, this is not an answerable question, but some likely ball park figures based on your experience would be appreciated.
