Fiber & Cat 5 LAN Network

nightwolfzor
Hey,

Im looking for some hardware for a network to support 800 clients... The building the network is designed for is very large and therfore no matter where i place a central server room, CAT 5 will not be able to reach...

I was thinking of using fiber... However I have never had any experience with fiber networks...

Basically what I am looking for is a fiber optic switch with 8-16 ports... I was looking a MM fiber with MT-RJ cpnnectors... I was woundering if any 1 could reccomend some optic switches that would work... I also need 5-6 24port 10/100/1000 switches using cat 5 cable that are able to plug into the fiber switch...

So i need....
One 8-16 port fiber switch...
then i need a few gigbit switches that can be connected the the fiber switch via an uplink port or GBIC card or wat ever... I also then need to connect the fiber swtich the the server back bone...

Could some1 please give me some links and some reccomended hardware????

Thanks,

NW
