    Very funny people. What I’m asking is what type of cable do I run to set up my company to use Voice Over IP (i.e. Cat 3 , Cat 4, Cat 5, Cat 5e, etc). I would like responses that could help me not garbage.
    Thanks,
    John

    Garbage in; garbage out.

    But seriously…

    It’s a question that cannot be answered. Voice over IP only defines a transmission system down to layer 3 of the OSI model. Layer 2 can be anything. It could be Ethernet, PPP or Token Ring. These layer 2 (link layer) protocols in turn have different options for layer 1 (physical layer), and this effects the cabling requirements.

    For example, IF you use Ethernet (and you don’t have to), you could use CAT 5 cables or coaxial. As long as they both meet Ethernet’s requirements, they’ll work for VoIP.

    So, you see, your question cannot be answered.

    just remember to stick with green cables, and learn how to spell WIRING ;-)…
    …and remember that us Europeans have a different sense of humour to you Americans.

    Only a guess. I may be wrong.

    But _garbage_ is an American word. The English translation is _rubbish_. That’s what we say here in “OLD Europe”.

    Keep smiling 🙂

    I must say that reading this posting is a good way to start my day.

    We Canadians are caught in the middle with influence from both side of rubbish and garbage – I think we need to invent our own term. How does “garbish” sound?

    Do not take regions/continents/countries too seriously.I have european grandparents,south american parents,american daughters and will like to live either in Canada or Europe.
    And still unable to figure out the proper pronunciation of the word “router” or “without” or “checkout” when I visit Vancouver.
    Best regards!!!!!

    If you are planning to use gigabit ethernet to the desktop you must consider install cat. 6
