 Cross Talk on ISDN using Cat5E
We have just moves and needed to extend the dmarc of out ISDN T-1 about 200 feet. We used Cat5E in Conduit but experienced signal degridation over the run. Should we make a ru of shielded cable to see if the amount of chatter subsides?

Dear S,

Using shielded or ABAM cable may help you as you might have too much alien cross-talk. T-1's are paded at the terminating equipment provided by your service provider. You may want to check with them if the padding can be reduced to allow a better signal to noise ratio before you go through the expense of running a new cable
