Cisco Equipment Pricing Information

You can assume labor costs to wire a building are around $120 per drop.  (Fiber costs arount $500 per drop.)

While doing your design, keep in mind the code standard currently is category 5e UTP for horizontal cabling.  Also switches and hubs with 10/100 mbps ports are as cheap today as ones with 10 mbps ports only.
