| Cable replacement|
|I am looking for information on how long cabling in a building should last. How often does for instance, cat5 need to be replaced before it starts going bad? Any links to documentation would be helpful.|

There is not realy a time limit on cable as it is passive. What will afect it is the conditions under which it was installed and whether or not it has been exposed to extreme conditions.
