Dear Siddharth,

In short, you will need cable, jacks, outlet faceplates, patch panel, patch cables, punch-down tool, cable stripping tool, some ordinary tools like screwdrivers as well as cable fishing tools (for retrofit installs). It is difficult to embrace a rather large subject like this in a form of a helpdesk answer, so I would like to refer you to a document that we put together to cover the subject:
