New PIP-USP3's are shipping with a clamp-on ferrite core for emission regulations.  The enclosed instruction sheet says to place the supplied ferrite core on "the cable" but doesn't identify the cable.  The picture shows an RJ-type connector, but it isn't clear whether this is the AUX or NETWORK cable.  Can you clarify?

...and if I'm using shielded CAT-5 for TCP-IQ do I still need to install the core?

The ferrite choke you are referring to is for the Data Line (RJ-45) cable not the Aux (RJ-11) cable. It is to meet the stringent European CE Emissions requirements when using standard Cat 5 UTP cable. You would have to check with the European standards group as to if STP would meet their requirements or not.
