I've run into a situation where someone ran 200' of CAT5 through a buried 2" PVC from their main building to a 2nd building. Currently they are using the CAT5 wire to tie together the networks and extend some of their CO lines from the DEMARC in the main building to the out building.
They said their "phone" guy said the fuses he put in would protect them from lightning. I say no way. They also mentioned there are issues at times after a lot of rain.
Anyway they will now pull fiber through it. There are 4 POTS lines running through this conduit. What I'm looking for are some 4 line POTS to TCP/IP adapters that we can use at each end till we toss the current phone system.
Apparently I don't know the right key words to use with Google.
