I have inherited a problem.
To "save money", the company had the maintenance guys run new CAT5 lines. The 3 months I've been here I hear something about once a week about switching to these new lines. The problem is that when I checked out the lines, they are run within inches of the flourescent lights that run down the office central hall. There's only about 6 inches from the drop ceiling to the real ceiling, so there's not any room to move the lines away from the lights. Also, re-running these lines with shielded CAT5 has already been shot down by the boss.
Does anyone know of a product that I can use to "wrap" the lines or the lights that will provide a shield from the EMF?
I'd like to be able to salvage these runs or prove that re-running the lines with shielding is less costly.
