Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to use structured cabling?
Structured cabling is a cabling system to support multiple hardware equipment so it works efficiently.
Does Cat6 replace Cat5e?
Most new installations cable use Category 6 and they are compatible with Category 5e. In future, Category 6 will replace 5e but the intension is that it will remain compatible.
What is the difference between Cat5 and Cat6 Cabling?
Mainly it is transmission performance. For Category 5e, it is usually 100 MHZ and stretches to 250 MHZ for Category 6. The result is improved insertion loss, NEXT (near end and crosstalk), return loss and ELFEXT (equal level far end crosstalk). This means higher reliability, better signal to noise ratio and higher data rates.
What do I need to think about for my business over the next ten years?
You should consider your system requirements. Category 5e cabling is suitable for Gigabit data, so perfectly adept for most offices but with innovations in audio visual, CCTV and large files, Cat 6 will be best placed for future plans.
