Which Ethernet cabling standard is best for me?
When it comes to data cabling in Canberra, you’re likely to hear electricians and cablers mention terminologies like CAT5e, CATC6 and even CAT8. These terminologies refer to the various Ethernet cables that are available on the market.
Ethernet cables vary in price and performance, and therefore, it’s important to be guided by an expert when choosing a cabling system. As of April 2021, CAT5e and CATC6 are the standards most commonly used for data cabling applications in Canberra.
CAT5e cabling is a popular, low-cost option that’s suitable for a large number of residential and small business applications. CAT5e provides speeds of up to 1 Gbps and bandwidth of up to 100 MHz.
CAT6a is a jump up from its predecessor (CAT6) in terms of speed and bandwidth. It also features a “shielding” that almost eliminates crosstalk. CAT6a provides speeds of up to 10 Gbps and bandwidth of up to 500 MHz.
CAT6 cabling is more expensive than CAT5e, but offers greater bandwidth performance. It also reduces crosstalk (when different signal pathways cross) and general signal interference. CAT6 provides speeds of up to 1 Gbps and bandwidth of up to 250 MHz.
CAT7, CAT7a and CAT8
CAT7, CAT7a and CAT8 are the latest generation cables. They’re not cheap, and tend to be used for specific “high-end” data applications. Despite offering superior performance levels, these new-generation cabling technologies are rarely seen in homes and small to medium-sized businesses.
