CAT5e, category five enhanced, cables can support 1GB/s at 100 meters whereas the CAT6, category 6, cable is an enhanced version which can handle pressures up to 10GB/s at only 55 meters. Thus CAT6 supports higher bandwidths in comparison to CAT5e.
CAT5e and CAT6 cables show variations in frequencies as well. CAT5e has a frequency of 350MHZ whereas the category 6 patch cable has the higher frequency which is 550MHZ.
CAT5e and CAT6 cables have the ability to counter electromagnetic influx from all sources. The radiations are emitted by matter all around us. Charged species do emit higher doses of radiations such as the electric types of equipment, circuits and so on. Electrons are lost and gained by various atoms and it’s an ongoing phenomenon. The gain of the electron by an atom means the release of radiations and these radiations can penetrate into the nearby computing devices too.
One can expect more radiations in an area of congested cable and wire systems. The networks of computers are connected by cables. So one can expect more ‘cross-talk’ that is disruptions as a result of EMI’s.
The CAT5e and CAT6 Cables have been provided with the unique ability to counter this crosstalk so that the computing operations aren’t affected.
Twisting and shielding allow enhanced performance. CAT5e and CAT6 cables are coated with a protective layer added to go along with the twisting of the conducting wires. Each pair of the conducting wires is twisted alternatively to deter the EMIs.
The flow of data, signals and the mobilization of computing resources becomes streamlined and efficient.
Both the series of Ethernet cables can handle the pressures of crosstalk’s and foreign intrusions but definitely, CAT6 is an advanced version. CAT6 can support higher bandwidths and boost the overall process of signal routing.
CAT5e was an updated version of CAT 5 cables, where ‘e’ stands for enhanced. But CAT6 cables have replaced both the older versions.
Computing operations need to be handled with utmost care for quality performance. Maintenance of computing resources is also mandatory. The selection of a suitable patch and Ethernet cables can help relieve computers of all undue pressures.
