I have been called in to run 33 CAT6 cables through a customer supplied 2" PVC conduit. To top it off the run is a 2 story vertical drop. I know the conduit will be grossly overfilled according to the fill charts. But I guess my question is-- What is the ramification of an over filled conduit, and what problems am I looking at regarding the long vertical drop?
I know the solution. More chases or less cables. But the client is going to ask "why"?
The cables will carry a mix of voice and data. and maybe even a couple of POE AP's. My guess is at least a third of the cables will go unused.
What should I do?
