Outdoor network cabling.

Discussion in 'Home Networking' started by Peter Crosland, Jan 16, 2011.

  1. I am familiar with installing small internal wired networks but I have been
    asked to investigate the possible installation of a CAT5e network cable in
    an outdoor environment. The length will be 80-90 metres and of course
    outdoor quality cable will be specified. A short section will be in a
    subterranean duct and the rest will be fixed to a low wall just below the
    capstones. Apart from the obvious things is there anything else I should
    look out for that might be relevant. TIA.

    Correct wiring and placement are a must. Watch out for backup generators, really low power lines, anything that will cause lots of ESD. Other than that and obvious tripping and or not high enough cabling not much else.
