What is the difference between CAT-5 and CAT-6 Cables?
And what are the benefits of using Plenum cable when setting up a network?
CAT5 is a basic cable, and supports a 10/100 Mbs Ethernet connection with a capability of 100 Mhz, while a CAT6 is more advanced, and performs better than the CAT5. CAT6 can support a 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection and can operate at 250 Mhz. The benefits of using plenum cables are they are less toxic than non-plenum cables provided they ever caught fire, but that comes with a price. So if you're networking an office I would suggest the CAT6 as they carry double the bandwidth, and will increase productivity, and plenum cables for safety.
