Can I run cat5 next to electrical?

While a Cat56 armored cable is designed to protect against external interference, it is not recommended to rotate side by side with its electrical wiring. Typical is to rotate electricity at the bottom of a studio and the Cat56 at the bottom of a different studio. Basically, do the same thing that would be done for the telco.
