Items required for endpoints:

– cat5e or cat6 cables, preferably of a resonable quality and brand. preferably use cat6 (not for the speeds) for the resistance to cross-talk and interference.

– wire stripper / cutter

– endpoint keystones

– faceplates and box (use one or two keystone per faceplate, 4 is too cramped)

– punching tool

– network switch or router

– network testing tool

Items required for patch cables:

– cat5e or cat6 cables

– crimping tool

– wire stripper / cutter

– RJ45 plugs

Take note of:

– where are you going to position the switch

– where are you going to position wireless access points

– thickness of casing required to hold many cables at certain sections

– try to avoid running with power lines

– rooms with only one line might require local switch to handle multiple devices

– use 568B wiring layout
