Can Anyone give me sites or links that will tell what type of cable I need to use for Voice Over IP? Any help will be welcomed.

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.

Garbage in; garbage out.
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.1st May 2003 at 22:42 #24290especialista en cableadoGuest

Whatch out for those american made aerial manholes.2nd May 2003 at 09:29 #24291Tom H.Guest
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”.

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?3rd May 2003 at 02:35 #24293especialista en cableadoGuest
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.

You can find everithing about cabling at this site:
If you are planning to use gigabit ethernet to the desktop you must consider install cat. 6
