Hi,

What would you recommend to protect a server room from surge and lightning?

We have..

8x DSL lines, RJ11connection
1x cable modem, RJ45 connection
2x ubiquity M5 bullits connecting to other sites, RJ45 connection
2x 10kva UPS with battery boxes
1x 5kva UPS

I want to protect everything from lightning and surges..

I'm considering the below any other recommendations?
What are you using and are you happy with it?

If you have a descent UPS, it will protect you from power surges & lightning. No need for additional power protection.

And from the number of reactions you're getting to your question, you can guess that almost nobody bothers protecting data lines. At worst you get a fried modem and these are pretty cheap to replace these days.
