Is it possible to connect switches together via a patch panel?

I have a small 1 VLAN LAN composed of 8 managed switches. For redundancy, I am connecting the switches in a ring topology. 5 of the switches are in the same room, but the other 3 switches are in the next room, about 20 feet away. I could run a cable through the ceiling, but is it possible to connect them via the patch panel?

Please see attached picture which depicts what I want to accomplish.

 

Best regards,

Alex

Yes, all network jacks are connected to the patch panel. I don't think it should be an issue and I tested in a test lab. I want to make sure this is a valid solution before I implement in production.

 

Thanks.

Yes you can connect it. I dont see any challenges to connect like this.

Hi Alex

I think your mean is STAR topology.
