Today’s Eio post is on Cat6 Networking Cables.

Cat6 cables, also known as category 6 cables, are cable the standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other networking needs. It is a high-fidelity, twisted pair cable which consists of four twisted pairs of solid or stranded wires, and is generally not shielded. The cable provides performance of up to 250 MHz and features more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise.

Wisegeek says this:

CAT 6 cable is one of the latest standards in high-fidelity data transfer cabling. Consisting of four pairs of twisted cores, the cable is engineered to significantly reduce cross talk and interference. These characteristics allow CAT 6 cables to be used in installations capable of performance up to 250 megahertz (MHz), such as Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet systems. The cable is generally unshielded and terminated with RJ45 modular plugs. When these cables require joining, particularly the patch cables running from wall outlets to individual computers, a CAT 6 coupler is typically used.

100% manufactured and tested within the United States, this cable meets the stringent requirements for anyone who needs to procure products exclusively manufactured in the USA. For voice/data/video distribution, it will handle bandwidth-intensive applications up to 550 MHz. Meets all EIA/TIA Cat6 TIA/EIA-568-B-2.1, draft 9 standards, and drastically reduces both impedance and structural return loss (SRL) when compared to standard 100 MHz wire.

Constructed from high-quality cable and a shortened body plug, this design minimizes Near-End Crosstalk (NEXT) levels. The molded, snag-free boot prevents unwanted cable snags during installation and provides extra strain relief. Available in a variety of colors to easily color-code your network installation.

Today’s Eio post is on Cat5e Networking Cables.

Cat5 is short for a category 5 cable, also known as an Ethernet cable. These cables are meant to carry signals, most commonly used in structured cabling for computer networks. They can also carry telephony and video signals. Most Cat-5 cables are unshielded wire containing four pairs of 24-gauge twisted copper pairs, terminating in an RJ-45 jack. If a wire is certified as Cat-5 and not just a twisted pair wire, it will have “Cat-5” printed on the shielding. Cat5e cables replaced the Cat5 cables. The “E” stands for “enhanced” specification.

According to Wisegeek:

“The outer sheath of Cat-5 cable can come in many colors, with bright blue being quite common. Inside, the twisted pairs are also sheathed in plastic with a standard color scheme: Solid orange, blue, green and brown wires twisted around mates that are white and striped with a solid color. The twisted pairs inside a Cat-5 cable reduce interference and crosstalk, and should be left twisted except at the termination point. Some experts recommend untwisting only ½ inch (12.7 mm) of the pairs to strip and make connections. Cat-5 cable can be purchased off a spool in varying lengths, or bought pre-cut to standard lengths with RJ-45 jacks already attached.”

For voice/data/video distribution, it will handle bandwidth-intensive applications up to 350 MHz. Meets all Cat5E TIA/EIA standards, and drastically reduces both impedance and structural return loss (SRL) when compared to standard 100 MHz wire.

Each of the individual pairs is bonded together to help maintain the twist-spacing throughout the line right up to the termination point.
