CAT5 Ethernet Cables

CAT5 Ethernet Cables

MCL’s range of Ethernet cables are used to connect  equipment together to form a physical network. Compatible equipment includes a huge range of network-equipped devices such as: PCs, net work printers, Laptops, Games Consoles (PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One etc), BluRay / MediaPlayers, network hubs, switches and routers. RJ45 is the plug type.

Our range of Cat5 patch cables (actually Cat5e) are 10/100/1000Mbps compliant using unshielded (UTP) extended CAT5 Ethernet cable with RJ45 male connectors on both ends. CAT-5e cables are primarily used for networking, data transfer, and voice-over-ip (VOIP) phone connections.  Our patch cables use high quality moulded boots and are designed and tested to exceed the performance criteria set for Enhanced Category 5 (CAT-5e) Patch cords.  All our patch cables are terminated using high quality performance modular plugs.

MCL Data Solutions’ range of RJ45 network data CAT5 and Cat5e patch cables includes patch leads in various colours in the following sizes: 0.5m 1m 2m 3m 5m 10m 20m. Use the filters below the left hand menu to find your desired product. If you require any assistance please call us on 01702 443810.

What are network ethernet cables?


A ethernet cable can be manufactured in several different lengths and colours to fit the needs of the installer. A ethernet cable consists of two RJ45 modular plugs (8P8C), one placed on each end of a stranded cable. Stranded cable is constructed using four pairs of stranded wires each twisted together, and is used for ethernet cables because of its ability to be bent without causing damage to the wire or interruption of data transfer. As their name implies, ethernet cables are used to "patch" one network component to another eg. a computer to a network by connecting  a network card to a hub or switch, or linking network equipment together in data rooms.

 

What is difference between Cat5e and Cat6 Ethernet Cable?


The major difference between Cat5e and Cat6 is the quality of performance they provide. Cat5e is typically used for networks using 100 Mbit/s or a gigabit network, with performance of up to 100 MHz. For networks that can handle up to 250 MHz, you would want to make use of Cat6 cabling, as it offers more than twice the performance of a Cat5e. Although Cat6 may be able to handle greater data loads than Cat5e, it's always best to use the proper ethernet cable to match the cabling in your building; it pays to find out what is already in use at your location before installing the network.

 

What are Shielded Ethernet cables and Why They Are Used?


In most cases, unshielded ethernet cables are used in networking, but if your surroundings have strong radio signal interference, a shielded network system and ethernet cables will most likely be required. Shielded ethernet cables have a metal inner jacket protecting the 4 pairs, and a metal jacket covering the RJ45 modular plugs. Shielded ethernet cables are for only specific applications and are not compatible with unshielded network equipment

 

Current Standards for CAT Ethernet Cords.

Cat5: Typically used on 100 Mbit/s Ethernet networks and can be used up to 100 MHz; however, Cat5 is not suitable for1000BASE-T gigabit Ethernet. Not recognized by TIA/EIA

Cat5e: Typically used on 100 Mbit/s Ethernet networks and gigabit Ethernet networks; can be used up to 100 MHz. Currently recognized by TIA/EIA

Cat6: Performs at more than double the MHz of Cat5 and Cat5e, going up to 250 MHz. Currently recognized by TIA/EIA

Cat6a: Standard for future 10 Gbit/s applications.

Cat7: Standard used to describe ISO/IEC 11801 Class F cabling. Cat7 is a protective shield covering 4 individually shielded pairs (STP) for transmission of frequencies of up to 600 MHz
