I need to run 5 cable drops. Both ends will have a 12 port patch panel. I'm thinking of running a 25 pair cat5 cable instead of 5 individual cat5 cables. Are there any pros/cons to running the single 25 pair. Also if I run the 25 pair, how do i terminate the cable at the patch panel. The patch panels are standard 568B panels.
