IP Base Station: support of 10 Mbit/s on Cat3-cable

Hello,

 

can we run an IP Base-Station with 10 Mbps on an old Cat3 cabling-system or is 10/100 and Cat5 required?

 

Background for that question is the existing cabling infrastructure at our customer. He'd like to migrate to an IP-based DECT solution without changing the cables between the cabinet and the outlets.

 

Thanks in advance and regards

Matthias

Hello Matthias,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

From the Installation Guide:

 

Transmission length is up to 100 meters/329 feet according to IEEE 802.3u on a twisted pair cable, e.g. cat.5e.

The base station is a class 1 PoE device (802.3af) and must be powered accordingly (maximum power supply consumption
3.0W according to PoE 802.3af).

The radius coverage of the base station is up to 90 meters/295 feet indoor and up to 300 meters/984 feet outdoor, with a
handset in line-of-sight.

Hello Steffen,

 

thanks for that feedback. Does this mean the answer is "NO"?

 

One more question: Does a test make make sense?

Hi Matthias,

 

I would recommend to contact your reseller to liaise directly with KIRK support as they would have to agree with the kind of installation in order for you to receive any support.

 

Best Regards
