Some FAQs About Ethernet Cables Answered!

Hear the word “​Ethernet Cable​​” and you will start thinking about

different cables and their types that you have come across. Tangled in a

world of confusion, you start searching about them. And bam! You

come across several types of ethernet cables to perplex you even


Well, we do not blame you! If you are not much aware of the

technology, knowing about cables can be overwhelming. Also,

engineers have way more knowledge about cables and their

functionalities as compared to a layperson. To help you get over your

confusions, we have come up with some of the most frequently asked

questions that will give you more understanding about Ethernet Cables

and how they work. Look at some of them given below:

​​ 1​

q what is the purpose of ethernet cables

Q. What is the purpose of Ethernet Cables?

A: Ethernet cables have the potential to connect different technological

devices through a single local area network. You will ​​Ethernet cords


to different devices like televisions, game consoles,

computers, and switches.

Q. What does the inside of Ethernet Cables look like?

A: Ethernet cables have an outer jacket with four twisted pair of wires.

These twisted cables prevent the interference that arises within the


Q. What are the different types of Ethernet cables available in

the market?

A: Category 5e (Cat5e) and Category 6 (Cat6) are the most popularly

used industry standard cables.

Q. CAT5 and CAT6 – Explain the difference please.

A: The first difference, of course is the bandwidth rating. CAT5E stands

for ​CAT5 enhanced and it has a higher bandwidth as compared to CAT5.

The bandwidth of CAT6 is higher than CAT5E. So, with CAT6, one can

transfer more data at high rates. Most of the ​CAT6 cables use RJ45

connectors and you can interchange them based on your bandwidth

q what are the benefits of using cat6 ethernet

Q. What are the benefits of using Cat6 Ethernet cables?

A: CAT6 Ethernet Cables are compatible with all its older versions

without any modifications. It makes use of the standardized twisted

pair. You might find CAT5 and CAT5E of good quality; but CAT6

undergoes stringent testing for system noise and crosstalk. Also, CAT6

Cables give you up to 250 Megahertz (MHz) of performance.

Q. Tell me about the maximum length of CAT6 Cable?

A: A CAT6 cable can have the maximum length of 328 feet. There is a

295 cabling between the patch panel and wall jack and sixteen feet of

stranded patch cable between two jacks and attached devices.

Q. So, what is CAT7 Cable?

CAT7 is the latest Ethernet Cable standard. It is backward compatible

with CAT5/5E and CAT6 cable. It offers durability and speed and

support up to 10 Gbps. However, the testing of these ethernet cords

has proved that it has the potential to transmit up to 40 Gb at 50

meters. It comes with an extensive shield that lessens signal loss and

need special GigaGate 45 connectors.

We hope the above given frequently asked questions gave you a better

understanding of Ethernet Cables. Watch out this space to know more
