NEC Noob Needs Help

My client is a small office with an ancient NEC DSX PBX. Dialtone & handsets works fine, no issues, ever.

They are adding a building to the property that will be connected w trenched fiber to CAT6 for network, about 100 yards away.

How do I extend those 2-pair pairs across to the other building & (presumably) a punch down block there, for dialtone & old handsets in the new offices?

Pull copper at the same time. Install lightning protection.

RE: NEC Noob Needs Help

Outside plant copper also. Make sure you have enough ports to support the phones you will be putting in the new building.
