In july, we began our project to build Local Area Connection (LAN) in our campus. Our campus is not to big and we thought we could connect each home only with FTP and UTP cable. But the problem is the longest cable distance is about 800m!
First I didn't believe that we could connect such network with FTP cable. Because as long as I know the longest network that can be established with FTP/UTP cable only 500m and using 5 switches.
But we made it happen! We are using 8 switches for the longest network.
