Installing underground Cat5e cable
i have been asked about connecting a nursery classroom to the network at a primary School i work at, the building is roughly 25 - 30 feet away from the main school. it is currently connected through wireless but has a poor signal and tends to not work very well.
it now seems that the fire alarm is to be upgraded on the building and there will be a trench dug up to install new wiring, i was quickly told by the Head on Friday to think about throwing:D a Cat5e cable in so we could connect them up.
i was thinking of running External grade Cat5e inside some Polypropylene Conduit as the cheapest option, does anyone know if there is any other factors i should think about?
not sure if there are any earth potential risks (lightening strikes) or fire risks, any advice would be much appreciated.
