Your business may have been operating fine with Cat5e cabling, but needs change quickly, and Cat 6 cabling may be worth considering if you’re wiring for new construction or retrofitting a new location. Of course, if you have 10 gigabit Ethernet needs, Cat6 or higher cabling is required to take advantage of those blazing fast speeds. But even if your current needs don’t yet call for Cat6, it may be wise to go ahead and install it to accommodate future needs without having to rewire everything.
Cat6 network cabling may look just like Cat5e or Cat5 network cabling, but there are differences that make it the preferred choice for some organizations. When compared with Cat5e network cabling, Cat6 is subject to stricter standards concerning system noise and crosstalk. Cat6 cabling is rated for up to 250 MHz (compared to 100 MHz for Cat 5e), and works with 10BASE-T (Ethernet), 100BASE-TX (fast Ethernet), 1000BASE-T /TX (gigabit Ethernet), and 10GBASE-T (10 gigabit ethernet). It can be used in lengths of up to 330 feet (or 180 feet in 10GBASE-T networks).
