Is it necessary to have a patch panel?

Hi

I got a question about buying patch panel or not. Why don't just plug the UTP, which are run from all 24 workstations, to the switch?

Thanks!

Leo

That's what I do, but I do not have that many lines. Maybe cat5j would like to add more insight on patch panels? Yes, I know how to punch-down wires, etc. Larry

Thanks Larry for your reply. I now at least know that there're people to do so.
