I am cabling up a large building with labs and offices. Going to each fixed computer, I want a short unshielded cat6, as these are easy to replace. However, out of the room and to the server room, I want shielded Cat6.
Can I use a switch to convert between these? Or do I need a patch bay?
Software/Hardware used: Cat6 shielded Cat6 unshielded switch patch bay
