NTE5C & RJ45?


[link to this post]
 
Good Afternoon,

So I have a SOGEA line being installed this week and with that I'm guessing an NTE5c master socket, My question is I'm going to be using a customer DSL cable (RJ11.RJ45) which I used in previous setup with a MK2 plate.

Can anyone confirm if the socket on the NTE5c is still RJ45 capable or am going to require crimping a RJ11 on the other end ?

I have a Mk4 faceplate mounted on a Mk5c socket for my ceased OR line.


I can confirm the DSL port supports RJ45 connectors.

Thanks, sounds promising, though from what I'm seeing as this is a SOGEA connection there won't be need/supplied a face plate.

You should be fine.


What is the actual cable type though? Is it two pair Cat5e?

Without a faceplate the naked 5c just has a BT master socket - the standard BS6312.


Surely OR would have some form of faceplate? Our Mk5c was installed with it.

If you already have the NTE5A with a Mk2 or Mk3 filter for the SOGEA line, that probably won't be replaced unless you need to use VoIP on extension sockets.

Full details about SOGEA installation, including compatible master sockets and faceplates, can be found at https://www.openreach.co.uk/cpportal/content/dam/cpp...

I've never seen the VRI faceplate out in the wild, and I was on the BT SOGEA trial. Did they ever get produced in large numbers?

An RJ45 connector will fit a normal faceplate.

I’ll put my hands up, I don’t install SOGEA or G.fast ... it used to be my proud boast that I was trained to work on every single product ... CBA these days

It is a CAT5e using 2 of 4 pairs (Greens and Blues)
