What CAT5 cable do you buy and use on towers to keep 100BT

We have had to go through several brands of cables with mixed results. We defintely discovered shielded (FTP) is important. Do you guys have a favorite supplier/ brand / model of outdoor cable that has stood the test of time on tall towers (say 250ft).

Question about pulling CAT5 cable up towers

We have had some issues where a cable installed will work for some time and then start having issues (rebooting the box etc.). I have read all over and some people saying the way you pull it could put stress on the inside conductors thinning them and making them more likely to have issues when the w...

ParisDragon, 'interface=all' is the most recommended configuration for the interface in simple queue.
Ah very good, I guess maybe some bug in the past made that guy not use it. I am switching them all to all, thanks

ParisDragon , you can use PCQ in the another way too. e.g. mark clients and specify certain bandwidth 2M/2M. Of course you should have 8M line, if you want 4 users to get 2M/2M. Let's hope Mikrotik takes our suggestions of Bandwidth queue groups where each member of the group gets the bandwidth ass...

if you have 1100 queues with the same speed limit, it just wastes your resources. just make one PCQ queue (see manual) that will limit all your users each with the same limit (you will replace 1100 queues with 1-2) The way I understand PCQ queues it shares that bandwidth equally among all users, in...

different hardware cant import config, only if Identical in everyway. This is why you do an Export file Full-Config from the main telnet prompt.
