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 shielded to protect from external noise and interference
