Networking Ethernet Cables

There are two main classifications of networking Cables: The first one is Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) and Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP).  STP Networking Cable has an extra layer of shielding to make them more resistant to outside interference, and, thus, have an improved ability to maximize bandwidth in comparison to UTP networking Cable.

Types of networking cables

Networking Ethernet cables belong to several categories based on different specifications that are subject to various testing standards.

Cat5 Networking Cable

Category 5 Ethernet cable, also referred to as Cat5, is older and was intended to support speeds up to 10 megabits per second and 100 Mbps.

Cat5e Networking Cable

Cat5e, or category 5 enhanced cabling, improved the speed and performance of Cat5. It is intended to support 1000 Mbps speeds. Cat5e is likely to deliver faster, reliable speed compared to Cat5.

Cat6 Networking Cable

Cat6 Network Ethernet cabling takes a step up from Cat5e and includes some additional improvements and it can be capable of 10-gigabit speeds under ideal circumstances.

Cat6A Networking Cable

Cat6a or Augmented Cat6 is the latest standard for twisted pair cabling systems. Cat6a is used for 10GB Ethernet installations and is backward compatible with Cat6 and Cat5e.
