Hello chaps,

I'm going round in circles with a client here and I wonder if you could help? Its a block of flats, a conversion.

The specification (which I wrote) says;
Each apartment will be provided with Land-line telephone cable terminating in a single telephone socket outlet. The service will be capable of operating to make and receive calls without requirement for power.

For digital communications, each apartment will be provided with a terminated single broadband data cable outlet of Cat 5e or higher, suitable for broadband connection by the occupant to their chosen service provider.

Telephone and broadband outlets shall be connected via the site riser system to a suitable central control situated in the main service area. The contractor shall employ a communications specialist for the design and installation of all communications network services and specifically for final termination of accessories. If appropriate, installation of communications cables may be carried out by the contractor under the direction of the communications specialist.

this is now going round the houses like mad. The contractor is suggesting that one cate5e cable will do both perfectly adequately.

So long as the phone can be separate from the broadband provider, I can't get excited about how many cables.

But, connection to a broadband outlet uses all 8 cores from a Cat5 e doesn't it? Or has something changed and am I out of date?

I'm thinking one cable is not going to provide enough cores.

thanks,

Zs
