Yeah we think we may need to use them.
They left their old network diagram and it looks like it was 95% phone lines, so I believe those 4 pair cables were doing 4 lines at a time, x 57 cables, = ~200 patches - more patches than phone lines and internet circuits listed.
This makes sense since we were told there was no fiber to the site, just a DSL circuit- that sounded weird but with no internet patched up for most desks, it makes sense. Maybe they were getting internet from another office but I don't see any patching for it.. very weird. What would they do without a good internet connection, and why do they have such a nice well equipped server room with expensive patching, hundreds of ports patched, etc?
Anyway, we're going to do some testing and see if we can break the connection between two machines by wiggling cables etc. Thanks so much guys, you've been very helpful and I really appreciate it.
