Can you run Cat5 and CoAx together?
But no problems with CoAx / Cat5. They make “structured” cable, which is CoAx / Cat5 bonded together and they wouldn’t if there were interference issues. Yes. You will.
What is the difference between Cat5 and cat6 cables?
The main difference between cat5 and cat6 cables is reduced “crosstalk” and faster speeds in the transferring of data and connection. The speed of a cat5 cable can handle up to 10/100 Mbps (megabytes per second) at 100 Mhz bandwidth, a speed that was quite efficient in earlier applications of the cat5.
