Is anyone just "standardizing" on APC? As long as you get APC-to-UPC
jumpers for the switch ends, it seems like a more general approach.
We're in the process of setting up CATV and just terminated all of the
new runs with APC, after an initial test of a "data run" using the
converting jumpers seemed to work well.
