Ok here's the situation....I got a job to put in a new phone system into a building.
The people who did the Merlin system before strung 7 cat 3 drops a distance of 20 feet from one building to the another and taped them together. The lines are drooping and it looks like crap.
I want to get rid of that mess. Im looking to put a outdoor enclousure with a 50 pair 110 block in it. I will terminated the drops coming from that building outside on the wall. I will then terminate the 50 pair Cat 5e line from the outdoor 110 enclosure, secure it with a steel cable, and run it into the other building where the phone system will be located. where it will terminate into one of the wall mount 12 port patch panels.
Now, they also want Internet access in that building too. Has anyone mixed voice/data within a 50 pair Cat 5e cable here? I dont foresee any problems. But, would like any recomendations or suggestions if this cause me any problems.
Thanks for any input....
