Types of Data cabling
Cat5e Data cabling in Chelmsford Essex
1 Gigabit Ethernet over copper cabling system. Still a tried and tested cabling offering a secure, cost effective and flexible cabling solution for running today’s high speed applications.
Despite the introduction of higher performance cabling such as CAT6, CAT6a and CAT7, CAT5e remains the most popular and commonly deployed Ethernet cabling standard.
The main reason for this is that it supports gigabit networking and so theoretically, if used exclusively with gigabit network cards and switches, will support higher data transfer across the network.
However, the emergence of CAT6 has facilitated a far more effective platform for gigabit networking due to its decreased data loss. So in reality if there is a genuine requirement for gigabit CAT6 is the category of choice.
But gigabit networking is only relevant when large amounts of data, for example large image files such as 3D need to be rendered across the network. CAT5e has benefits of its own to recommend it. It is more economical to install, and moreover it requires less space than the higher diameter CAT6 and is more tolerant of tight bends and therefore easier and faster to install in trunking and where space is limited.
Cat6 Data Cabling in Chelmsford Essex
Category 6 performance cabling system, it is interoperable with standards compliant products and fully backwards compatible to lower performance classes. Cat6 supports Power over Ethernet (PoE and PoEP) applications including VoIP, WLAN access points and Security cameras etc.
By utilising all four pairs within the cable, increasing the frequency of the twists in each pair and reinforcing the cable with a plastic spine, CAT6 reduces the amount of "cross-talk" that can cause data loss.
In other words Cat5e and CAT6 are like two roads with the same speed limit, but the CAT6 road has many more lanes so traffic jams are less likely.
Anyone rendering large graphics files over a network – for example 3D CAD programmes can produce files measured in gigabytes - architects, structural engineers, in fact any designers or technicians that work with large files. Then there is the issue of future-proofing. There is no doubt that networking has benefited enormously from the increase in data transmission speeds from 10 mbps to 100mbps and there is no reason to believe that 1000mbps will not be considered the norm a few years from now. Even Category 6 structured data cabling is going to superseened.
In a small installation for example an office of up to 100 people this probably takes the form of what is known as horizontal cabling, which means that all the cables (CAT5 or CAT6), regardless of whether they are in the same room, or on different floors, lead back to one central location. Cables are terminated to RJ45 jacks at the user end and RJ45 patch panels in the central location, within a suitable enclosure or cabinet. All of the interconnecting cabling be it Cat5 or Cat6 will need containment of some form or another.
