Ok here is my situation i have a residental customer they have CAT5 run in a star formation for their phone system only 2 pair on each cat 5 segment is being used. The phone system is a business type im assuming digital. Each segment is run to a phone closet and two pair on each line is punched into a phone punch panel. Ok so what i would like to do is take the other two pair on each line punch that into a Data rj45 punch panel and then rewire each face plate so that two pair go to the rj11 phone jack and 2 pair goes to the rj45 jack so they have have a data network.
So my question is will doing this cause problems on either the phone system or data networ since all four pairs are in the same cable. Can you run both data and phone on the same cat5 segment ? Take into consideration this house is not dasy chained.
