    ML over CAT7 must be completely separated from TCP/IP Internet, Ethernet, ...

    Start at the beginning and read the B&O installation book carefully ... Big Smile

    THanks Vienna for your answer.

    Cat 6 should be enough, don't you think ?

    Best regards

    Cat 6 or 7 is of no importace as long you are using the cable for analog MasterLink or PowerLink.

    But the layout (construction) of the cable is very important!

    You need a screened / shielded cable + each twisted pair being seperately shielded/foiled.  

    B&O recommends/sells Cat 7 -
    S/FTP cable (Screened / Foiled Twisted Pair) from "TYCO"

    Any Cat 6 or Cat 7 cable described as:

    S/FTP = Screened / Foiled Twisted Pair

    S/STP  = Screened / Shielded Twisted Pair 
    F/FTP  = Foiled / Foiled Twisted Pair
    SF/FTP = Screened & Foiled / Foiled Twisted Pair

    should do the analog ML/PL job properly. 

    PS: keep in mind - in the future - in a B&O "all digital" NetworkLink installation you might 
          need the higher bandwidth offered by a Cat 7 cable ...
