CAT 5 cable is obsolete!Â YES really!
CAT 5 cable has been superseded by CAT5e cable.Â Thereâ€™s not a lot of difference though as CAT 5 cable delivers signals with frequencies up to 100 MHz over ninety metres while the later 5e standard manages 100m!Â cat_5_cable.pdf
So thereâ€™s no significance for most small businesses who are contemplating structured cabling to enable them to reap the benefits of being able to move their staff around whenever itâ€™s warranted without needing to call in expensive telecoms and IT engineers.
CAT 5 cable links the comms room to every possible desk position in your offices (providing you think ahead!) allowing phones and computers to be linked easily.Â Every CAT 5 cable is numbered on the wall or floor outlet with a corresponding identity on the CAT 5 patch panel(s).Â Plug in a CAT 5 patching cable from the phone system and a similar one from the router or data switch to the userâ€™s points and then by plugging RJ45 leads from the workstation youâ€™ll be up and running in no time at all.
