To purchase our cat5 cable, cat5e cable, cat 5 wiring, cat 5 cables, sometimes called Ethernet cable, is short for Category 5 cable, a current industry standard for network and telephone wiring. Cat-5 cable is unshielded wire containing four pairs of 24-gauge twisted copper pairs, terminating in an RJ-45 jack. If a wire is certified as Cat 5 and not just a twisted pair wire, it will have “Cat-5” printed on the shielding.

Cat-5 cable

Cat 5 cable replaces Cat 3 cable, which could only carry data at speeds up to 10 megabits per second (mbps), while Cat-5 cable supports data speeds of 100 mbps or more. A standard Cat-5 cable can also reach 300 feet (100 meters), and aside from networks and telephones it can be used for many other purposes. Cat-5e is enhanced Cat-5 cable that supports 1000 mbps or gigabit Ethernet, or it can be used with 100 Base-T networks for long-distance runs of 1150 feet (350 meters). This type of Cat-5 cable meets a specific standard referred to as “EIA/TIA 568A-5,” which should be stamped on the outer sheath.

Among Cat-5 cables, there are three different configurations for pinouts, or wiring of the RJ-45 connectors. Various network devices utilize one of the three types of pinouts. The three pinouts are referred to as straight through, crossover and roll-over.

The Cat-5 cable that runs from a computer to a switch will be a straight through cable, for example. If two PCs or two switches are connected, the Cat-5 crossover cable would be used. Finally, a Cat-5 roll-over cable will connect a PC to a router. More recent devices, however, can detect the type of Cat-5 cable being used and route signals accordingly.

Cat Cable| Patch Panel| Networking Cable| Structured Cabling

A panel of network ports contained together, usually within a telecommunications closet, that connects incoming and outgoing lines of a LAN or other communication, electronic or electrical system. The patch panel connects the network’s computers to each other and to the outside lines that enable the LAN to connect to the Internet or another WAN.

Crossover Cable | LAN Cable | Networking Cables

A LAN system is typically implemented by physically connecting all of these devices with copper-conductor twisted-pair LAN cables, the most common being an 8-wire cable which is configured as 4 twisted-wire pairs. Ethernet typically utilizes a “star” or “spoke” topology, where each computer of the LAN is connected to other computers via a central hub.
