ISDN30e Extension

ISDN30e Extension


Hoping this is a quick one.

I have an ISDN30e presented to a ground floor location in my office. I plan to install a new PBX in a 2nd Floor Comms Room and need to connect this to the ISDN30e. The final plan is to move the ISDN30e with BT but timescales add a risk to my project.

I thought an option would be to install CAT5e/6 structured cabling between to the 2 locations as an interim fix. Distance isn't more than 50mtrs. What are the considerations here, is it possible?

RE: ISDN30e Extension

Then move the ISDN30 modem, that needs to be as close to the PBX as possible.
Best to use CAT5e/6 but use shielded and away from power lines if you need to corss them no problem but not parallel.


It works! Now if only I could remember what I did...

Balanced twised pair or coax.

If twisted pair you should be fine. Remember that ISDN30 is simply E1/2MB at the physical layer
