CAT3 Phone Cable

Category 3 (CAT3) cable is a type of twisted pair cable frequently used in voice and data applications. In simpler terms, CAT3 is phone cable. Primus Cable’s CAT3 phone cable is manufactured to meet or exceed product certifications along with the standards of the Electronic Industry Alliance's (EIA) as well as the Telecommunication Industry Association's (TIA) specifications. Moreover, our phone cable is commonly used for 10Base-T and 100Base-T networking, particularly for telephone and low speed data projects. And we stock phone cable for both plenum and for riser applications.
