  • Why should you install Cat6 over Cat5E cables?

    If CAT 5E is rated for 1 Gbit and a standard CAT 6 (not 6A) will only support 10 Gbit to 40 or 50 meters, then what is the purpose of installing Cat6 instead of Cat5E?

  • What to do about cabling long distances and signal strength fading?

    I made a connection using Cat 6 SYSTIMAX cable from the server switch to the next repeater, which is 85 meters - and then to the next point it is 50 meters and then 50, then 50. The problem is the signal strength is not that strong and its on and off. What do you advise me to do? Thank you.

  • Cat 6 cable distance from microwave antenna to power adapter

    Are you familiar with Microwave products (Motorola) and their relationship to Cat 5/6? Specifically, do you know the usable distance for a Cat 6 cable from a microwave antenna to the power adapter?

  • CAT-6 -Return Loss failed (RL and RL @ Remote)

    Hi, I have one situation that for me is complicated. I run CAT6 UTP network cable. When I connect each end of the cable to a Fluke DSP-4000 & DTX-1800 Network Analyzer, it tells me that Return Loss failed (RL and RL @ Remote). I check details on the analyzer it says that pair 3,6 failed 4,5...

  • Cat6 vs 25 pair

    I am installing patch panels between 4 cabinets, less than 16ft apart. They want it tested to Cat6 spec's, but they want 25 pair cable used. Is there a performance difference?

  • Cat 6 crossover only getting 100 Mbps?

    So I'm trying to make a 1000 Mbps connection between two machines with gigabit ethernet ports. Problem is, even with cat 6 cable, my transfer rate is peaking at 12.8 MB/s (should peak at 128, yes?). It says in the connection status on both ends that the speed is 100 Mbps. Is there something I need...

  • how does channel length affect patch cord length?

    I need to install a 10/100 base Ethernet switch into a rather small cabinet. I read in a previous discussion that the minimum length for a CAT5e patch cable is 2.5m, which will make the install look untidy. If I use a CAT6 or CAT6a cable what will the minimum length have to be?

  • What type of cable is suitable for an RS-485 interface?

    This is a serial specification and as such is going to be dependent partially on electronics.  Cat 6 is better balanced than Ccat 5, and I am a big fan of shielded systems for a variety of reasons.  I would suggest, however, that you discuss this with the active supplier.  Cabling is backwards-...

  • How to derive bandwidth from the frequency of Cat6 cables

    How do you derive bandwidth (bits per second) from the frequency of Cat6 cable (250MHz for example)? It is known that Cat6 can carry up to 1 Gbps.
