| Cat 6|
|<!=question>We are going to be running Cat6 cable for the network server through out our office area. At the same time I would like to pull Cat5e for the phone/fax use. Our IT man is making things worse by saying that the two cannot be run side by side. I know not to run any of it near the higher voltage electric, but this seems kind of a waste of time. Can you guide me in the right direction? Also what is the longest run legnth for Cat6?<!=question_end>|

The two can be run together without any ptroblems provided that you follow installation practices.
The longest runs for category 6 (also cat 5e, 5, 4 & 3) is 90 meters or 295 feet.
