What would be the benefits of each solution?
What tools would you need for each installation?
What hardware would you need (routers, etc)
A port (jack, connector)
A Cat5e cable &
A combination router/switch
Optical fiber tester (continuity) & cable tester (continuity)
Punch down tool
Connectors and RJ45 terminators
Basic tools (screwdrivers/drill/ ruler/ pencil/crimper)
The benefits of having wireless would allow a user (student) to be able to bring their own electronics into the building (cell phone/tablet/laptop/etc) and be able to access the internet service provider.
By installing Cat5e cable from the extended demark (Billy office area) to our classroom would allow us to have a direct internet source.
By installing/ laying out fiber optical cables from the ATT demark area to Billy office would insure the best speed will be direct.
The benefit of installing Cat5e cable would provide uninterrupted service directly to the class room and then branch off as a Star Topology.
By the middle of the hallway between Billy office and the classroom, I would install a repeater, just to ensure quality of signal is being transmitted clearly. I believe I would use a High Power Wireless Smart Repeater. Because wireless signals can degrade when passing through walls and distance. And it would help increase the amount of people using wireless electronics without any delay or interruption
Along with a switch to be use in the classroom to hook up as many PC as needed.
Maintaining both wireless and cables would enhance the service and the universal flexibility with electronic usage throughout the campus. If a PC is being use or if a student wishes to bring in his or hers laptop to access the net.
