What is the difference between Cat6 and Cat5 cabling?

Most new installations are now Cat6 and due to the backward compatibility, Cat5 applications will also work on Cat6. The difference between the two generation is transmission performance and bandwidth from 100MHz for Cat5 to 250MHz for Cat6. If an installation uses Cat7 the bandwidth can be 600MHz and each pair of wires are individually […]

What is Power over Ethernet (PoE)?

This provides DC (Direct Current) power over a Cat5 or Cat6 network for DC power items such as desktop telephones and other network connected items. The maximum distance between PoE points should be less than 90m as power can be lost in transmission.
