I concur with Splitpair
I just rolled out a new microwave hop with TDM circuits and Ethernet. The TDM circuits are extended from the SJ to a distance of 80 some feet. Two cross connects through the NOC's 110 panels which are wired with regular old CAT5 cable and over our own CAT5 drop to the MUX.
On the other end of the microwave it hops a buried 25pr 22awg cable across the hill to another site and dumps out there. Total run is around 120 feet. LBO is set for 0-133.
Also working on another multi-site microwave system with many TDM cross connects and those are again, done with CAT5. Could we use CAT3? sure. The cables from the MUX to the DSX panels are 25pr 22AWG. No big deal
