cable issue

Hi,

I find that the length between far end LAN port to the core switch is over 100M. Can I use Cat 6 cable to overcome this issue? if not, any work around? e.g. put two or more switches in between?

BTW, the 100M limitation is end-to-end (from end user LAN port to the server). Is it correct?

How much over 100m? If not much, chances are will work anyway. But it would not a professional and certifiable installation.

So to play it safe, you will need to install a switch in between.

135m is too much. You need to place a switch in between.
