Cat cable

Joveice
Go to solution Solved by Razarza,

Hello, I have as a task from my school to find what wires in a Cat cable is in use over normal Internet?

Cat cable? You mean like a Cat5 UTP cable for data transfer?

 

Cat5/e, 6 and 7 have 4 pairs of 2 wires for a total of 8 wires.

 

Here is a stripped Cat5e cable before the spine has been cut off.

 

The Green and Orange pair will be used for data transfer for 100Mbps but if connected to a 1Gbps Ethernet port the Blue and Brown pair will be used as well to reach 1Gbps.

Only Cat5e and above can do PoE and Gbit.

With PoE the power will be sent along the same wires as data transfer and do not interfere with each other because the frequencies are so far apart.

 

As a note you can do Gigabit with cat5 but it isn't really recommended, you should be using at least cat5e if you are planning on using Gigabit Ethernet.

cat5e for 1 gigabit network and under

cat6a for higher and better rate bandiwth, ie: 2/4/10 gigabit on 100m cable

Most ISP's provide a Cat 5e in the box.  Probably that's the answer?  Most people never bother replacing those.

QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

No problem, if you having any other questions about UTP I should be able to answer them.
