Telephone wiring and VoIP issues

Michigan Telephone has an interesting page on How to Distribute VoIP Throughout a Home that is a reminder that things have changed a bit. It used to be the old red and green quad wire thing but now, it seems, cat 5 wiring is preferred for all house communications wiring. The history with color codes and issues is described. Other topics for good wiring are covered, too. Splices need to be done right. Isolating the VoIP lines from the telephone company covers the network interface methods the telco uses.

While written with VoIP in mind, there is a lot of good information about telephony issues that provides definitions and background and the issues that might arise. A lot of good ideas with the reasoning behind them can help in understanding modern telephone systems.
