Let me ask you a hypothetical question...
Suppose you found yourself in the absurdly contrived position of being in a room with 100 pretty girls and you could kiss any one of them. Kissing 99 of them carries no consequence whatsoever, but ONE of them is carrying a terrible disease and if you contract it you will die in hideous suffering.
Do you kiss any of them?
Please understand that I am not disagreeing with what you said. I just don't want my concern to be misunderstood.
I'm simply pointing out that risk is a function of multiple variables. Low Risk + High Consequence
and High Risk + Low Consequence both
produce an undesirable outcome.
It's like homeowner's insurance. Nobody buys it because they REALLY
believe their house is going to burn down. They buy it because if it does, they want to be protected.
One last thing...
My concern is really based on the types of cable being used and the implications of their use. I suspect that if there if there is any UTP being used that it is part of something like an RS-232 cable or something similar. Or even higher rate. That's all. If that's not the case then what I said is irrelevant.
Anyway, everyone have a good weekend. I've got to run.
