We are currently renovating our offices. The project includes replacement of older data cable with Cat 6. The problem is we will be running to an older IT closet which will be replaced. The schedule for replacement has yet to be determined. We know where it will be, just not when. The original closet will remain,as we have no need for the space it takes up. Out IT guys are pushing us to leave enough slack in the data cabling to disconnect it from the old rack and reroute it to the new racks in the new room as soon as it is complete. The distance is roughly 60 '. IS there not a better way? A patch panel or something of that nature where we could simply plug in the data line and then run a patch cable from the junction to the new rack? Is it a signal loss issue, or are they being needlessly obstinate?
