Before & After


Common Questions

  • What is the difference between Category 5e and Category 6?
    The difference between Category 5e and Category 6 is in the transmission performance and extension of the available bandwidth from 100 MHz for Category 5e to 200 mHz for Category 6.
  • Why wouldn’t I skip category 6 and go straight to optical fibre?
    You can certainly do that and it is recommended between buildings and over long runs, however for general workstations you will find that a fibre system is still very expensive.

    Ultimately, economics drive customer decisions, and today optical fibre cable together with optical transceivers and leads are about twice as expensive as an equivalent system built using category-6 and associated copper electronics. Installation of copper cabling is more craft–friendly and can be accomplished with simple tools and techniques. Additionally, copper cabling will still support the emerging Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) power standard under development by IEEE 802.3 af. EIA & TIA International Standards Authorities.

    However, having stated that. Fibre is a long term "clean" medium able to support ever increasing bandwidth demand, over distances (<90 metres) and most significantly not suseptible to EMI/RFI induction the eternal bain of all telecommunication signals.
