    I totally get what you are saying, but having a high end mouse or keyboard or headset walk off totally sucks and the effort of locking them down is minimal. It is all in your own personal risk analysis whether the effort is required and I prefer to not take the extra chances.

    They're allowing people to bring their own cables, and this might just be me, but it almost sounds like they're implying that bringing cables is required. There will be the standard, CAT5e cables already there, right?

    Also, what's the speed of those cables, of the network used? I'm thinking of buying CAT6a cables, but want to know if there's reason to.

    I believe switches were confirmed as 10/100 from cwizard.

    It doesn't quite matter what you bring so long as it is CAT5 (doi) and above. CAT6 and CAT7 cables are compatible with CAT5 until you hit certain bandwidths. I'm using a CAT7 cable to a 10/100/1000 switch to a 10/100/1000 router with a CAT5 in between. Zero issues.

    When it comes to physical security, I feel pretty good. My case has a eyelet for a lock. I then run my mouse, headphone, and keyboard cable through a simple washer (eye of the washer smaller then a USB key) and secure it into the lock as well. The result, is a very secure, but very simple setup.
