Threading fiber between floors inside a house

Peace,

 

In my house there are ditches in the walls where cables pass (CAT5 \ 6) From all rooms to a communication cabinet on the ground floor.

To the basement, there is only one usable canal, and it is very crowded, as it runs through a coaxial cable next to a cable , And is the only canal that transmits communication between floors.

My (excessive) solution to the problem, is After all, a fiber is much thinner than a CAT5 cable, and it has a high capacity alongside flexibility (as long as the fiber is in the wall, I can replace the transmitters on both sides and upgrade over time.

Ideally - because there are cables that carry several pairs of fibers within them - this can make it possible to transfer several "cables" in one thin cable - excellent!

 

The way I imagine it, it's one cable that runs between the floors and at both ends there is a termination into a box with several LC connectors.

The distance is not great, it is still a house (in my opinion inside the wall it is less than 10 meters) so it is possible to use a multimode fiber that I realized is cheaper.

 

The obvious question is - what is the price, and who does such things?

I saw on eBay ready-made cables, but they are single cables, and not everyone has a strong sheath that is suitable for threading (after all, fibers are very sensitive) and I, as mentioned, want multi-conductor fiber, how much can manual termination by a professional add to me?

 

I would love to hear advice and opinions from people who have done such things once, or alternatively if there are other ideas for the problem of bandwidth between floors.

Suggests still consider basing it all on, ethernet will also probably be easier to install and also in terms of the speeds you can get to and the ethernet based equipment which is nonetheless more accessible.

 

Creating 10Gbps capacity between floors will not be enough? You can only use Ethernet to transfer a variety of content (in other words - you may be able to override the coax cable).

Problematic, the CAT5 cable that is currently passing there is barely moving, re-threading CAT6 \ 6A is not possible (and even less futrue proof)

It is impossible to flip the coax unfortunately, there are Yes converters in the basement as well and need a connection to the plate.

 

In terms of equipment accessibility - it is actually much easier to find used SFP + and transceiver optical cards at great prices, compared to 10G-BaseT equipment which is more expensive and less supported.

But let's say I have a switch that supports SFP + at both ends
