Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6A, Fiber Cable Options 

Category 3 Cable

Cat 3 cable has been around for 30 plus years now and is still used in many offices and warehouses nationwide for analog and digital voice traffic. If you have cat 3 cabling, you'll need to replace it with cat 5e, cat 6 or cat 6A for higher network speed requirements and for VoIP phones and devices.

Category 5e Cable

Cat 5e has been used for network applications for over 20 years now. It is rated for up to 1GBs for shorter distances, nominally at 350MHz. The most common use today for cat 5e is for small business networks with smaller bandwidth requirements, and also for VoIP applications.

Category 6 Cable

Cat 6 cable is rated for up to 10GBs for shorter distances at 550mHz. Cat 6 has a higher twist rate in each cable pair, which provides higher transmission speed than cat 5e with less errors. It is currently the most popular choice for data networks and VoIP applications and is the superior choice when providing both on one cable.

Category 6A Cable

Cat 6A cable can be used to replace cat 6 and cat 5e for data networks with higher speed and transmission requirements. Cat 6A is a shielded cable which can double transmission speeds and extends 10GBs up to 100 meters. It is becoming more and more commonly used in environments that demand higher speeds.

Fiber Cable

For fiber cable options, OM3, OM4 and higher fiber options are available for larger bandwidth requirements or for network backbone in single and multi-mode design. RG6, HDMI and other cable options are available for video, but many video options are utilizing network cabling options such as cat 5, cat 6 and higher. This can help streamline cabling throughout your facility. Fiber is required for many cable runs over 330 ft. and can overcome the limitations of copper for longer runs.
