Not sure what you are asking. The cables you plug into the switch. You can just crimp on rj45 plugs but it is a much cleaner install if you use a patch panel. You would then run short patch cable between the panel and the switch.
Thanks i know how to crimp the rj45 plugs but need to know how I set it all up to work properly.
Also the right equipment to buy and install
 
First be very sure the AP you are using are 802.3af/at. This is the industry standard form of PoE, some AP use a proprietary form and will not work with switches that pretty much only support 802.3af/at

After that you just buy a switch that has enough PoE power. You need to see how much power your AP use. Lets say they use 15watts then you need a switch that has 90watts of poe power to run 6 AP.

PoE you do not have to do anything special it just work. Some switches only certain ports can run PoE other all ports can. It is just a matter of plugging the stuff in the correct port.

You plug your router into any other port on the switch and everything is then connected.
