Wow, that's scary Jeff. Ty wrap or tape a cat 5 to a support strand? Wow.

When you have aerial fiber splices, you need to leave quite a bit of slack so you can get the case into a splicing truck for fusion splicing (actually the same applies to manholes too). A long loop is usually left neatly tyrapped to the strand.

Of course I'm talking about large fiber cables and the tyraps - large, long, black UV resistant and our cost was about $5 EACH.

"Remember that RJ45 was a telco jack for multi-line long before it was adopted for data."

The guy has found an old Merlin jack, and wants to believe that it will work.

It might work. Once, on a late evening, I was ready to fire up a data network for a client, and I had forgotten to bring the patch cords. The only thing laying around was a box of used Merlin line cords, which I plugged into the switch and the patch panel. They worked fine, until I could get back the next day with Cat5 patch cords.

I got a gigabit ethernet connection on 4 pair Cat 3, terminated to a 66 block, yesterday in a location where I would not have been able to run a new wire laugh
