Summary

Although UTP is the most common choice for LAN cabling, fiber and wireless connectivity can improve network performance and availability in certain areas. As soon as you have determined the location of your MDF and IDFs, you should be able to select the proper vertical and horizontal cabling to best serve the devices you will install in your network.
