No matter your cabling needs, our experts have you covered
This is the most common type of networking cable in today's world. It is available in both PVC (CMR) and Plenum (CMP). With Cat5e, you can achieve speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps in distances of 100 meters or less. Cat5e comes in the following colors: white, blue, grey, yellow, green, and black.
This type of cable is becoming a popular choice for new installations. Much like Cat5e cable, Cat6 provides you with speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps in distances of 100 meters or less, and is available in both PVC and Plenum. The main difference is reliability at high network speeds and heavy bandwidth tolls.
Cat6 cable allows for 1,000 Mbps to flow between 500-600 MHz while Cat5e allows 1,000 Mbps at 350 MHz. Cat6 comes in the following colors: white, blue, grey, yellow, green, and black.
The newest and most advanced type of cable, Cat6A provides speeds up to 10,000 Gbps at 650 MHz. It is available in PVC and Plenum and also available shielded or unshielded. The shielded cable provides extra protection against interference from other devices and cables. All cables are backwards compatible with their predecessors.
Fiber optic cables provide the highest speeds over greater distances. Using light to transmit data, fiber optic cables can be extended beyond the 100-meter limit of copper cable. They are often used to transmit high amounts of data to connect different locations to the same network (i.e., different buildings in a factory, different IT rooms in a large office).
