I have one 24 port filly loaded patch panel (ports are arranged in a single row) and one SF300-24 port switch (arranged in 2 rows, each of 12 ports) and I want to connect them.
Now the connections from the PC would reach the back-side of patch panel(RJ45 on PC side, connected to the keystone behind patch panel).
Switch is mounted just below the patch panel. Patch cords will connect to front of patch panel to front of switch(RJ45 on both ends).
(1) Please verify if what I wrote above regarding the connectivity is correct.
(2) In patch panel there is a single row of 24 ports. If switch were also like that, the patch cords would have been symmetrically arranged(one patch panel port would just be above one switch port).
But, in reality the switch has 2 rows of 12 ports. Now how the patch cords should be arranged. I am looking both, industry standard and beauty.
Can anyone please provide a link (with pics) on how it should be arranged. If anyone happens to have this setup, please take a pic and put it here.
I want to learn proper and standardized way of doing it.
Thanks in advance.
