CAT 5e Ethernet cable & Connectors
CAT5e is short form for Category 5 enhanced is network cable. The cable supports performance speed of up to 1Gbps and reduces cross-talk interference. It is used for Ethernet (10BASE-T), Fast Ethernet (full duplex 100BASE-TX), and Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T) networks.
When the interference is too much, a connection may not be established and loss of signal hence no transmission at all. When using a shielded CAT5e Ethernet network cable, it should be terminated with a shielded RJ45 connector because EMI can affect any part of the cable.
In general, Shielding of cable and RJ45 connectors ensure one gets fast and reliable data transmission compared to unshielded CAT5e Ethernet cable.
