Category 5 Cabling

Enhanced cable suitable for both voice & data.

Cat 5e Cable

The term Cat 5e refers to the Category 5 Enhanced cabling standard for networks.

Cat 5e cables are often utilized within Ethernet infrastructures to support 10BASE-T (Ethernet), full duplex 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet) networks. Cat 5e technology provides performance of up to 100 MHz.

The Cat 5e cable standard shares similarities with the earlier generation Cat 5. Both of these cable categories contain twisted pairs of copper wire for transmitting signals. Their bandwidth is also the same. The difference between the Category 5 cable and Category 5 Enhanced cable is in performance specifications.

The Cat 5e twisted pair technology meets stricter specifications regarding factors such as crosstalk (signal interference between lines) and loss of signal strength.
