Common Types of Ethernet Cables
These are high-performance cables that are typically used in structured cabling for computer networks. They support 10 to 100 Mbps speed. Other uses of CAT5 include the transfer of telephone and video signals.
The biggest benefit of CAT6 cables is their resistance to electrical interference. CAT6 cables can support 10 Gigabit ethernet. They also support longer distance cabling than the CAT5 cables. They are a good choice for those with cable requirements of less than 120-150 feet.
CAT6a cables support 10 Gigabit ethernet at longer distances than both CAT5 and CAT6 cables. The crosstalk is also less than the other two. CAT6A is the best choice of cables for businesses that don’t want to upgrade anytime soon.
Optical fiber cables come in two varieties: single and multi-mode. There are numerous benefits to using optical fiber cables. Some of which are as follows:
- Fiber cables can be run for longer distances and take up less space in cable pathways.
- They have a bandwidth capacity of 400MHz/km and more.
