Types of Network Cables and Their Uses
Our trained network cabling contractors use a wide array of low voltage cabling depending on the task and future requirements of the business. Learn more about our cabling company and what cables are appropriate for what application below.
Cat X, simply refers to the Category of the cable being used, standardizing their fundamental relative properties.
Cat 5 is an early evolution of networking cable, available as an unshielded twisted pair and providing speeds up to 1000 Mbps, depending on the diameter and class of cable. Although theoretically capable of 1 Gigabit per second, practical usage does not achieve reliable connectivity above 100 Mbps.
Cat 5e is available as shield or unshielded twisted pair and provides speeds up to of 1,000 Mbps (1 Gbps), depending on the diameter and class of cable. Until recently, Cat 5e was the predominant network cabling seen in most homes and businesses.
Cat 6 is available as shielded or unshielded twisted pair and provides speeds up to 1,000 Megabits per second, or 1 Gigabit per second), depending on the diameter and class of cable. Now that Gigabit routers and network interface cards are commonplace, Cat 6 is rapidly becoming the new standard.
Cat 6e is an enhanced variant of Cat 6, with additional shielding, designed primarily for use in high interference environments.
Cat 6a is replacing Cat5e cabling, as businesses seek to future-proof their networks. Cat 6a operates at frequencies of up to 750 MHz and improved sheathing for less interference. Cat6a is the preferred cable for transmitting 10G networking, suitable to provide the backbone of your core networking infrastructure.
