Data extension


[link to this post]
 
Hello.

I have fibre broadband. What I want to do is as follows.
I want to move my office. I want to leave my master socket in the office (where it currently is).

I want to run an extension for the fibre broadband. I know I can just get a cat5e RJ11 cable but I would rather have a proper extension socket etc.

Is it possible to hardwire an extension into the master for just the fibre broadband? & then have a wall mounted box at the other end?

EDIT: Might just leave it though, looks like work I can't be bothered with...

Depending how recent the interstitial VDSL2 filter plate is, you may find on removing the NTE5A that there are a couple of IDC connectors at the top left of the filter plate. A/B for just that, I believe. I expect you would need a filter at the extension end as well, but an XTF-68/85 should do. There was a picture linked to a bit back.

Thinking about it, my idea is too complex. A straight CAT5 extension from the NTE5A to an XTF, wired from the NTE5, and remove the VDSL2 filter sounds easiest.

See my later post. That A/B is going to be unfiltered and not the best solution in your case.

I am wondering. In the server room is that a filtered socket or not?

Where it says 'ADSL connection on middle section' in your photo's, would this be filtered or unfiltered via this connection?

Would this be wired from the front of the NTE5 fibre socket?

That's what I'm saying, those are A/B connectors so unfiltered.

Wiring that way is just what I described in my fiorst post. My second post removes the new filter so is neater at the master. At the extension you want one of these.

But is it possible to run a filtered extension from the NTE5 without plugging it in at the front of the socket? I want it all hidden behind the walls you see.

I might just leave it as this is on the 2nd line I have.
