Category 5e or Category 5 Enhanced, high speed cables should be your first choice if you want to progress in today’s demanding Ethernet and Gigabit Networks. With this cable by your side, power is in your hands. Networx™ will give you the crown with this high performance, 350 MHz, CAT5e
patch cable. Here are the reasons why.
Networx™ CAT5e network Patch Cable
can handle even the most intensive bandwidth applications out there. Furthermore, the Networx™ CAT5e network patch cable is UL certified. This ensures you a branded, state of the art patch cable that is in accordance to all the standards put forth by TIA/EIA. The Networx™ Cat 5e patch cable is manufactured using 350 MHz Cat5e bulk cable. This bulk cable consists of four 24 AWG unshielded twisted pairs. The booted CAT5e cable also flaunts stranded conductors and a highly durable and rich PVC jacket. The Networx™ CAT5e cable also reduces NEXT interference and boosts performance by implementing short body, staggered, Cat5e RJ45
modular connectors. To top it all off, Networx™ Cat5e contacts are plated with 50 micro inch of gold. This in turn provides superior connectivity.
Cat 5 e cable is an enhanced version of Cat 5 that adds specifications for far end crosstalk. It was formally defined in 2001 as the TIA/EIA-568-B standard, which no longer recognizes the original Cat 5 specification. Although 1000BASE-T was designed for use with Cat 6 cable, the tighter specifications associated with Cat 5e cable and connectors make it an excellent choice for use with 1000BASE-T ethernet networks.
The 8 Position 8 Contact (8P8C) (often called RJ45) plugs and sockets are most regularly used as an ethernet connector. 8P8C connectors are typically used to terminate twisted pair cable.
A patch cable or patch cord (sometimes patchcable or patchcord) is an electrical or optical cable, used to connect ("patch-in") one electronic or optical device to another for signal routing. Devices of different types (ie: a switch connected to a computer, or switch to router) are connected with patch cords. Patch cords are usually produced in many different colours so as to be easily distinguishable, and are relatively short, perhaps no longer than two metres. Types of patch cords include microphone cables, headphone extension cables, XLR connector, RCA connector and 1/4" TRS connector cables (as well as modular ethernet cables), and thicker, hose-like cords (snake cable) used to carry video or amplified signals. However, patch cords typically only refer to those short ones used with patch panels.
