Our office space is spread out between two buildings and we have placed multiple IDFs/distribution frames so that each individual workstation can run a cable through the patch panels that are linked to the main switch that is connected to the router.
My question: Can we just connect the individual workstations first to a nearby switch (per table), which is then connected to the patch panel/IDF? (as opposed to running a long cable from each individual workstation to the IDF as this would entail a lot of wiring vs one long wiring to the switch per table and each workstation connects there).
