Category 3 Cable
Cat 3 cable has been around a very long time but is still in use in many offices and warehouses nationwide. It can still be used for traditional analog and digital voice applications. If you have cat 3 cabling, you'll need to replace it with cat 5e, cat 6 or cat 7 for higher network speed requirements or VoIP phone deployments.
Category 5e Cable
Cat 5e has been used for network applications for over 20 years now. It is rated for up to 1GBs for runs under 100 feet, 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 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 also a great choice when providing both of them 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. Cat 6A is becoming a more popular choice and can future proof your business for years to come. This is now a popular choice for schools and medical facilities with higher speed requirements.
For fiber cable options, OM3, OM4 and higher fiber options are available for demarc extensions over 330 feet, larger bandwidth requirements or for network backbone in single and multi-mode design.
