Those looking to install or upgrade to cat 6 data cabling may wonder what advantages are in store for them. After all, what about cat 5 and cat 5e that most networks are comprised of these days? While it’s true that these cabling solutions do quite well in their applications, cat 6 is a newer type of cabling infrastructure with specifications that are much more rigorous than cat 5 and cat5e because of the frequency it supports.
With data cabling such as cat 5e, you’re looking at running 150 MHz while supporting the usual gigabit Ethernet. However, cat 6 data cabling ups that support to 250 MHz with a 10 gigabit Ethernet and transmits information at up to 1000 Mbps. What does this mean? It means a network with a much greater bandwidth, less crosstalk and system noise and, all in all, a much stronger foundation for handling advanced applications and hardware. For businesses, time is money and with the dependency on technology growing like it is, having a network that consistently supports its needs is a must.
The strict specifications and commercial/residential state codes surrounding the installation of cat 6 data cabling will create an obvious need for licensed, experienced technicians in order for the job to get done right.
