3dog Posted August 30, 2018 Share Posted August 30, 2018 This is a question about the use of ethernet cabling for brand new offices, on which external directional cell tower antennas are mounted. A client is planning to move his offices into the penthouse suite of this building, which is currently being rebuilt. The client is planning to move into the penthouse suite which is the same structure that holds external antennas for Sprint, TM and VZW on at least 3 sides. Also the equipment rooms housing the gear used by Sprint, TM and VZW are in one area, but within the same structure that the office space is being built from. Those of you who have worked in close proximity to the back side of cell site antennas that are mounted on buildings, are you aware of interference problems with regular CAT 6 UTP for computers and data? If not, does it call for STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) or do we need to use Fiber for every drop? What about using their existing WAP's (wireless access points) for WiFi for the offices. Will that work, or will it be a signal nightmare? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
