CABLE TYPE DESCRIPTIONS

Cable Type Description
CAT 5 Short for Category 5, network cabling that consists of four twisted pairs of copper wire terminated by RJ45 connectors. Cat-5 cabling supports frequencies up to 100 MHz and speeds up to 1000 Mbps. It can be used for ATM, token ring, 1000Base-T, 100Base-T, and 10Base-T networking.
CAT 5E Short for Category 5 Enhanced, Cat-5e network cabling is used as a cabling infrastructure for 10BASE-T (Ethernet), full duplex 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet) and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet, or GbE) networks. The Cat 5e standard provides performance of up to 100 MHz and can be used up to a maximum length of 100 meters. As with Category 5 (Cat-5) cables, Cat 5e cables typically consist of four unshielded twisted pairs (UTP) of copper wire terminated by RJ45 connectors. Cat 5e is distinguished from the original Cat 5 standard primarily in its performance requirements. Cat 5e has stricter specifications in a number of areas, including Near-End Crosstalk (NEXT), Power Sum Equal-Level Far-End Crosstalk (PS-ELFEXT), attenuation and return loss.
CAT 6 Short for Category 6,Cat-6 network cabling is used as the cabling infrastructure for 10BASE-T (Ethernet), 100BASE-TX (FastEthernet), 1000BASE-T (GigabitEthernet, or GbE) and 10GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet, or 10GbE) networks. The Cat6 standard provides performance of up to 250MHz (500MHz for the newer Cat6a standard) and can be used up to a maximum length of 100 meters (55 meters for 10GBASE-T networks).
The Cat 6 standard was first released in 2002 as part of the Telecommunications Industry Association’s TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1 document specification. Cat6 is backward compatible with the Cat3, Cat5 and Cat5e cable standards, and as with Cat5 and Cat 5e cabling, Cat 6 cables consist of four unshielded twisted pairs (UTP) of copper wire terminated by RJ45 connectors.
In addition to its support for higher performance than the Cat5 specification, the Cat6 standard also includes more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise. While Cat6 is expected to supersede both Cat5 and Cat5e cabling in the future, all three types of cables continue to be popular for use in network installations.
CAT 7(ISO CLASS F) ShortforCategory7,Cat-7 network cabling is used as a cabling infrastructure for 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet, or GbE) and 10GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet, or 10GbE) networks. The Cat7 standard provides performance of up to 600MHz (1000MHz for the Cat-7a, or Augmented Category 7 standard) and can be used up to a maximum length of 100 meters.
Category7 cable is able to achieve higher performance than preceding Ethernet standards such as Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6 by requiring each of its twisted wire pairs to be fully shielded. This is known as Screen Shielded Twisted Pair (SSTP) or Screened Foiled Twisted Pair (SFTP) wiring, and it almost completely eliminates alien crosstalk while significantly improving noise resistance.
FIBER OPTIC CABLE Fiber Optic Cable is a technology that uses glass (or plastic) threads (fibers) to transmit data. A fiber optic cable consists of a bundle of glass threads, each of which is capable of transmitting messages modulated onto light waves.
Fiber optics has several advantages over traditional metal communications lines:
-Fiber optic cables have a much greater bandwidth than metal cables. This means that they can carry more data.
-Fiber optic cables are less susceptible than metal cables to interference.
-Fiber optic cables are much thinner and lighter than metal wires.
-Data can be transmitted digitally (the natural form for computer data) rather than analogically.
The main disadvantage of fiber optics is that the cables are expensive to install. In addition, they are more fragile than wire and are difficult to splice.
Fiber optics is a particularly popular technology for local-area networks. In addition, telephone companies are steadily replacing traditional telephone lines with fiber optic cables. In the future, almost all communications will employ fiber optics.
COAX CABLE Short for coaxial cable. A type of wire that consists of a center wire surrounded by insulation and then a grounded shield of braided wire. The shield minimizes electrical and radio frequency interference.
Coaxial cabling is the primary type of cabling used by the cable television industry and is also widely used for computer networks, such as Ethernet. Although more expensive than standard telephone wire, it is much less susceptible to interference and can carry much more data.
