i found this.

Connect the RJ45F to RJ45M rolled serial adapter to the console port if you are connecting the system to a serial console server with a standard CAT5 cable, and then connect the CAT5 cable to the adapter. The adapter provides the appropriate pinout connection to your equipment.

You need to use this cable if the console connection to F5 appliance is via Console server. So the connectivity looks like this.

Console Server (Cat 5 cable) --- RJ45F to RJ45M converter --- F5 Console Port.
