CAT5

Category 5 cable, is a twisted pair (4 pairs) high signal integrity cable type often referred to as "Cat5". Many such cables are unshielded but some are shielded. Category 5 has been superseded by the Category 5e specification structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet, and is also used to carry many other signals such as basic voice services, token ring, and ATM (at up to 155 Mbit/s, over short distances).

Not as fast as Cat6, which is becoming more popular in the theatre because it eliminates the need for a switch/Cat5 Crossover when connecting one networkable device to another.
