Cat. 3 may be suitable for short runs, I've done it in a pinch. Keep in mind that most if not all IP phones have a pass-through port for data. If most of the users also have computers connected by Cat. 5 you can use this for the IP Phones as well as the existing computers.
Are you confusing the 1234p with the 1235?
The Netvanta 1235P supports ActiveReach technology and will support Ethernet to support all grades of wiring - CAT5, CAT3 or legacy copper. When using the ActiveReach feature you will need a Media converter for each drop. Delivers 10/100 Mbps voice, data and even Power over Ethernet (PoE) over existing cabling.
I have used this unit with great reasults !
Thanks JW,I appreciate it.
