Hi stevedaniel,

To answer your question it is required that we know two terms viz. "Plenum rated cable" and "Cat 5".

Plenum rated cable has a special insulation that has low smoke and low flame characteristics.

Category 5 cables (Cat 5) is a twisted pair cable for carrying signals. This type of cable is used in structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet.

You can read more about Cat 5 cables from the below mentioned link:

Please revert for clarification.
