The Different Types of Ethernet Cabling

When it comes to selecting the correct Ethernet cabling type for your specific install project, there are many different types available. The ones we use most often in our projects are:


This type of cable is used by most businesses today. Cat5e is designed to carry data signals up to 100 meters (328 feet). Cat5e cabling is typically made from twisted pairs of copper wire. They're rated according to how much bandwidth they can handle. The higher the number, the faster the speed. For example, Cat5e cables can support speeds up to 10 gigabits per second.


This is also known as Category 6 or RJ45. This is the latest version of Cat5e and provides twice the bandwidth of Cat5e. Cat 6 is typically made from eight pairs of copper wires twisted together. They're rated based on how much bandwidth they can handle. Like Cat5e, Cat 6 cabling can support speeds up t0 10 gigabits per second.


This is yet another version of Cat5e. It's slightly more expensive than Cat5e but offers even greater performance. Cat 7 cabling is typically made from four pairs of twisted copper wires. They're rated based on how much bandwidth they support. Like Cat5e and Cat 6, Cat 7 can support speeds up to the 10 gigabit per second range.


This is yet another version of Cat 5/5e. It's similar to Cat 6 except that it uses eight pairs of twisted copper wires instead of four. Cat 8 cabling is typically used in very high-end applications such as server farms and large data centers. They're rated based upon the amount of bandwidth they can handle. Like Cat 5/5e and Cat 6, they can support speeds up to the 10 gigabit per second mark.


This is a new category of Ethernet cable introduced by Cisco Systems. It's designed specifically for use in Gigabit networks. Cat 9 cables are made from six pairs of twisted copper wires and are rated based on the amount of bandwidth they can handle. Unlike other versions of Cat 5/5E, Cat 9 cables can support speeds up to the 1 gigabit per second mark


This is a newer version of Cat 5/6/7. It was developed by the IEEE 802 committee and is currently being adopted into standards. The main difference between this version and previous ones is that it supports speeds up to 10 gigabit per second. Cat 10 cables are typically made from 12 pairs of twisted copper wires which makes them ideal for larger installations.

Our Ethernet Cable Planning Process

When it comes to Ethernet installation projects, planning is key to the success of the overall project. We start with an initial site survey to determine where you'll need to run your network cabling. Once we've determined what needs to be done, we'll then create a detailed plan outlining exactly what will be needed to complete each task. Once all the tasks have been completed, we then install the Ethernet cabling and test it thoroughly to ensure everything works properly.
We always want to make sure that our clients' Ethernet installation projects go smoothly. That's why we take great care when planning their projects. Our team has years of experience installing Ethernet cables and networking equipment, so we take great care on each project.

Consideration of Networking Components

As with all projects, the Ethernet cabling itself is not the only component that needs consideration. Other components include:

Power Outlets
Power outlets are required at every location where Ethernet cabling will be installed. If there aren't any power outlets available, then you may need to add additional outlets to accommodate the number of devices that will be connected to the network.

A switch is essentially a hub with multiple ports. When you connect two or more computers together using Ethernet cabling, they become part of a single network. You can then access these computers through the switch. Most switches come equipped with built-in wireless capabilities, making them perfect for small office environments.

Routers provide Internet connectivity throughout an entire building or campus. They also allow you to share files and printers over the network. They can be configured either as standalone units or as part of a wired infrastructure.

Cable management systems
These are devices that help manage the physical wiring of the network. They can monitor the status of individual cables and keep track of how much slack is left in each one.

Final Testing of The Ethernet Installation

The final stage of the project involves a comprehensive test of all components and cabling. At this point, we'll make sure that the system is working properly and that no errors were encountered during the installation process.

We'll perform a thorough walkthrough of all the work that was performed. We'll check to see if any problems were encountered along the way. We'll also verify that all of the connections are secure and that the proper amount of cable was used.

We also run line and capacity tests to ensure that the maximum throughput rates are being met. This ensures that the network isn't overloaded and that the bandwidth requirements of the users are being met.
