Do network cables HAVE to be terminated in a patch panel? Regulations?
We have just had a couple of network points put in by a different network company. When I went down to patch then in, they said its ok ive put connectors on the end of the cables. You can plug them straight in to the switch.
Before I say please come back and put them into the patch panel, does anyone know if this is regulation or best practice etc?
I'm not really bothered that they go straight in to the switch as its a bit of a mess, but would like to know before I say something?
Thanks in advance
