Network Cables CAT 5, 6 and 7

Network Cabling tailored to your needs.

The most popular form of internet connection in the modern-day era is Wi-Fi. This is a wireless internet solution that can connect to almost every device that can withhold an internet connection. However, Wi-Fi is not always the fastest method of connection due to environmental factors such as wall partitions, the distance between the router and the device you are using to access the internet with.

If you are a business who struggles to maintain a good network connection due to your Wi-Fi connection, then a CAT5, CAT6 or CAT7 cable may be the right solution for your business. CAT5, CAT6 and CT7 cables are all examples of Ethernet cables. An Ethernet cable is a type of wired connection that runs directly from the router to your device(s). Unlike Wi-Fi, the Ethernet connection cannot be interrupted due to the fact that all the data is travelling within the cable and not wirelessly. This means that your business will receive much higher connection speeds.

So, what is the difference between ‘CAT5, CAT6 and CAT7’ cables?

“Cat” is short for “Category”. The three categories of cable are capable of providing much higher connection speeds than one another.

Cat 5 – This category of Ethernet cable has a transmission speed of 10/00 Mbps (Megabytes per second)

Cat 6 – This category of Ethernet cable has a transmission speed of 1000 Mbps / 1Gbps (Gigabytes per second)

Cat 7 – This category of Ethernet cable has a transmission speed of 10,000 Mbps.
