Question:

To connect an ethernet cable to a patch panel, what tool would you use?

A Punch down tool
Explaination

A patch panel is a board having several electrical connectors; ethernet patch panels with RJ-45 connections are used in networking. A punch-down tool aids in the installation of ethernet wiring at the rear of RJ-45 sockets. You can accomplish it by hand, but excellent connections are tough to come by, resulting in packet loss. Using a punch-down tool speeds up the operation and guarantees secure connections between your cabling and patch panel.
