Nowadays, homes and businesses are operating on either a wired network connection or a wireless connection. Wired connections are usually faster than wireless connections and have lower latency. Both types of network hardware continue to advance, allowing users to benefit from faster speeds.

This might not be a big deal for the home network where the internet connection speed is usually the bottleneck. But businesses need to consider what kind of cables they are using. When using different types of Ethernet cables, the network speeds differ.

Not all Ethernet cables are created equally. They are grouped into sequentially numbered categories (“cat”) based on different specifications. Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6a, Cat 7 cable are the most common kinds of Ethernet cables. How to tell the difference between them and choose the suitable one for your network?

First and foremost, let’s have a rough sketch of their characteristics. All network cabling consists of 8 wires; twisted, and made into 4 pairs, each color coded by a solid color with their respective dashed/striped white cables. Cat 5 cables are designed to support theoretical speed of between 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps. The Cat 5e cables have lower crosstalk and provide a faster, reliable and steady speed than Cat 5 cable. Cat 6...
