NARAYANAN LAKSHMANAN, I'd use a grounding rod and drive that into the ground, then connect all ground wires to that. For lightning protection, a ligthning rod seems to be the only answer. Check the white paper on here and some great information about Cat 5 outdoor equipment on here. You will of course consider what equipment you use. If it does have a n outdoor enclosure, it is most likely designed to be electrically insulated. Hope this helps, good luck.
