Cat5e or Cat6.

Also, don't allow the cabler to "split the jacks" such that a single Cat5e/6 cable services more than one PBX phone. VoIP phones, now running at 1Gb speeds, require all four pairs.

You would think this goes without saying but I had a cabler do it to a customer last year.

you mean each voip telephone set has to hast its own cable? I'm planning to separate the data and voice network,

any comment about POE, any specific requirements?

Hi Mohamed,

Regarding POE requirement, please check the link below.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/phones/ps379/products_qanda_item09186a00808996f3.shtml

1. You get 48 port Cisco switches which can provide 370 Watts (Half POE), that means 24 such  IP Phone which consumes 15.4 watts can be plugged on this switch.

2. And the other 48 port POE switch with 740 Watts can power 48 such phones.

Please note not all phones consume 15.4 watts it depends on the class which that phone belongs to, if a ip phone consumes lets say 7.5 watts, then 48 such phones can be plugged in your half POE 48 port switch.
