Cat5e Plenum Cable

Cat5e Plenum is a premium ethernet cable that is suitable for applications with a data speed of 1 Gbps and 100 Mbps. Though TIA/EIA has laid out standards for the bandwidth for  Bulk Cat5e Plenum at 100 MHz, our Cat5e plenum has an enhanced bandwidth capacity of 350 MHz. 

This Cat5e Plenum cable has a CMP-rated jacket that is the highest rating fixed by TIA/EIA. CMP is the short abbreviation for Communications Multipurpose Cable Plenum. Ethernet cables with CMP-rated jackets find their way into high-risk plenum areas of the buildings. Plenum spaces are used to facilitate return airflows with greater atmospheric pressure. Therefore, there’s always the risk of fire eruption and to minimize this risk and halt fire progression, Cat5e Plenum is run in these areas. 

The inner structure of Cat5e Plenum 1000ft consists of as many as 8 conductors. These conductors are either made up of pure copper or copper-clad aluminum. Pure copper Cat5e Plenum Cable is far superior in performance with less attenuation (loss of signal strength), greater protection against crosstalk and EMI (electromagnetic interference), and less loss of energy. Though pure copper cables are way more expensive than CCA cables, they are worth the price. 

Here at NewYork Cables, we manufacture high-quality ethernet cables that not only meet but exceed all industry standards by a wide margin. These standards include FCC, CE, CSE, ISO/IES, TIA/EIA, and RoHS. To ensure that our ethernet cables are fully safe to use, we have tested this cable extensively. The cable is designed to support these applications: 10BASE-T (Ethernet), 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet GbE). This Cat5e Plenum runs 24 AWG, comes with a 10-year warranty, and free shipping on orders above $249.99.

Rest assured, when you shop ethernet cables from NewYork Cables, you get the best value for your hard-earned money.


What is Plenum Cat5e cable?

Cat5e stands for enhanced category 5 and plenum refers to the jacket rating of the cable. It means the cable can be used in indoor plenum spaces.

What is the difference between Cat5e riser and plenum?

Cat5e riser cable features a communications multipurpose riser (CMR) jacket which can be used in indoor vertical spaces such as inside walls. Cat5e plenum cable on the other hand features a thick communications multipurpose plenum (CMP) jacket.

What is the difference between CAT5e and CAT6 plenum?

Both Cat5e and Cat6 plenum cables come with the same plenum jacket and the difference between both is their categories. Cat5e is the enhanced category 5 of twisted pair ethernet cables whereas Cat6 is category 6.

Can plenum cable be used in walls?

The cable is safe to be used in walls however, a riser is more suitable for such installations. Because plenum cables are more expensive, we recommend using the riser cables in walls and the plenum cable in air-handling spaces and other horizontal installations.

What is the maximum distance for Cat5e?

Our cat5e plenum cable comes in 1000ft spools. It can deliver its optimal performance at up to 100 meters which is a blazing 100 MBit/s. 

Which color options are available with the Cat5e plenum 1000ft?

The cable is available in Black, Blue, White, Green, Yellow, and Red.
