Our school looks as if it is going to be rewired and soon.  I took a
couple of the replies I got from this list to school (Thank you everyone
who answered with ideas) and explained them to my technician.  He was
happy to see that fibre was mentioned to help out in our long-long cat 5
runs past ballasts and chillers/air handlers all along inside the

Now, what equipment would you recommend or are using in your schools?
My room wil be the center of the new network.  It is away from the big
electrical equipment.  We have a need for one 8 port fibre switch that
will feed 7 other fiber media adapters so that we can use our existing
newer switches at the ends of the long runs.

We are looking for equipment brand names, model numbers, and of course
the cheapest workable solution.  None of us here have even seen a fiber
