Should I use Cat5e or cat6?

The usage depends upon your environment and data requirement. For complete info, please visit our Cabling blog.  

Do I need Plenum cable?

You only need plenum if you are running the cable in HVAC air spaces. Plenum cable is only used in air spaces where they may potentially be a fire – the plenum doesn’t create toxic gas if the cable burns.  

What is maximum specified Distance for Cat5e cable?

The maximum specified distance for Cat5 cable is 100m or approximately 300 feet. Solid core has less attenuation than stranded cable.
