Using standard phones with standard bt connection at the phone end i will convert to rj45 at local patch this then travels cat 5 down to switcher then into bt line (i hope).

What do you mean by a switcher?

If you are trying to feed a standar BT voice line into an Ethernet switch in order to distrinbute the phone line then it wont work. An Ethernet switch will only switch digital Ethernet signals, not analouge voice signals.

You need a PABX, Private Automatic Branch Echange.

Heck Technical we don't even know what you are doing yet. We don't even know what you mean by "switcher"

You talk about cat5 and then you say standard phones which are analog. Analog only needs one pair so how are you wiring your cat5?

A one sentence question will result in a one sentence answer.
