Port Mapping for Phone Cabling
« on: May 30, 2013, 09:57:35 PM »
Hi all,

We have a lovely legacy of old telephone cable in the ground on our campus and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for port/pair mapping and management software?

We used to have a digital phone system (and probably an analog one before that)- when the last digital phones moved to IP the old cabling was of course left there as we still have a few fax lines, EFTPOS units, and fire systems. Most of the cabling in the ground is totally unlabelled, has many joins and Krone boxes in it, used to go in a loop around the whole campus, and of course the best documentation we have is a map from 1997.

I've been able to work out some bits, especially the newer stuff, but my documentation basically consists of pair numbers written down in an OpenOffice document, that leaves no clue on what cable is available where, and what is free/used.

If anyone has any suggestions on software that can handle Krone-style mappings, that would be great! Preferably free or low cost also as it's not a key focus of ours.

Thanks in advance!
