Are Data Cables Confusing?

You've followed the steps, you've installed multiple security and phone systems, and now you just need some data cables to get it all connected together...

But this only leaves you with one question...

What are the different data cables? How do they all differ from each other? And how should you know which one is the best one for you?

Unless you're an expert at technology, it's extremely difficult to tell, and the last thing you want to do is to accidentally buy the wrong cables.

Know The Differences Between Cat5, Cat6 and Cat7 Cables

Some of the most popular data cables are that of the Cat5 (Category 5), Cat6 (Category 6), and Cat7 (Category 7).

All of these cables serve relatively the same purpose minus some differences:

  • The rated performance of each
  • The demand for the material and installation of each cable.

The Cat5 Data Cable are one of the most popular cables among business owners. Today, this cable is more well known as the Cat5e (Category 5 Enhanced). This cable is capable of producing 1,000mbps (megabits per second) and is used in most residential and commercial applications. It requires two copper wires (while Cat5e uses four) which translates to how much data that it can transfer within a certain amount of time.

The Cat6 Data Cable is normally a safe one if you are unsure of which cable to purchase. Why? Because it has a reasonable price range and has the ability to proof your cable for a long time. It is a nylon spline and shields to reduce interference.

The Cat7 Data Cable is the one you would want if you had a huge database system within your business. It is known as the fastest cable available. It requires a GigaGate45 connection to max out at 100 gbps at less than 15 meter distances. 

Which Data Cable Size Is Best For You?

Based off of this minor information, it might help you slightly understand the differences between each of these data cables.

And now that you slightly understand, it makes it a lot easier and more convenient to know which one best suits your needs.
