Difference between cat5e and cat6 cables

Difference between cat5e and cat6 cables?

cat5e vs cat6 ethernet cables

The general difference between CAT 5e and CAT 6 is in the transmission performance, and extension of the obtainable bandwidth from 100 MHz for CAT 5e to 200 MHz for CAT 6. This includes better insertion loss, near finish crosstalk (NEXT), return loss, and equal level far finish crosstalk (ELFEXT). These improvements provide a higher signal-to-noise ratio, allowing higher reliability for current applications and higher information rates for future applications.

CAT 5e Features:

  • Enhanced “staggered” Cat5 RJ45 Connectors
  • Rated for 350Mhz
  • 4 Pair Stranded UTP
  • Molded strain relief
  • Gold Plated 50 Micron Contacts
  • UL ETL Verified
  • ANSI/EIA/TIA 568B
  • Rohs Compliant

CAT 5E Applications:

  • Internet connection
  • Gigabit Ethernet for Xbox 360, Wii, PS3 and other consoles
  • Computer networking PC or Mac
  • Transmit video signals with the use of a video balun for security surveilance
  • Connects switches, hubs, routers, servers and network interface cards

CAT 6 Features:

  • Enhanced staggered Cat6 RJ45 connectors
  • Rated for 550 MHz
  • 4 pair stranded UTP
  • T568B termination
  • Molded strain relief and snagless boot
  • Gold plated 50 micron contacts
  • ANSI / EIA / TIA
  • Rohs compliant

CAT 6 Applications:

  • Internet connection
  • Gigabit Ethernet for Xbox 360, Wii, PS3 and other consoles
  • Computer networking PC or Mac
  • Transmit video signals with the use of a video balun for security surveilance
  • Connects Cat6 patch panels, switches, hubs, routers, servers and network interface cards

    Thank you for the wise critique. Me & my neighbour have been making ready to perform a little research about that. We acquired a great e book on that matter from our native library and most books the place not as influensive as your information. I am very glad to see such info which I used to be searching for a protracted time.This made very glad! Anyway, in my language, there arent much good source like this.
