CAT5e (also, CAT 5) is an Ethernet Network Cable standard defined by the Electronic Industries Association / Telecommunications Industry Association (commonly known as EIA/TIA). CAT5e is the fifth generation of twisted pair Ethernet technology and the most popular of all twisted pair cables in use today.
A CAT5e Cable contains four pairs of copper wire. It supports Fast Ethernet speeds up to 100 Mbps and Gigabit speeds up to 1000Mbps. As with all other types of twisted pair EIA/TIA cabling, CAT5e cable runs are limited to a maximum recommended run length of 100m (328 feet).
White Ethernet Cables are ideal for connecting your PC, Switches, Access Points, Gaming Consoles (PS3, Xbox 360 & Wii) and NAS Devices to your network. They can be used to differentiate devices from one another or just to add some style and colour!
Please note: Due to a variation in manufacturing processes, some White CAT5e cables may appear as a slightly 'off-White' colour.
