Cat5e Cable Products

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

Shielding of CAT5e ethernet cable and RJ45 Connectors:  Benefits of Shielded vs Unshielded:  A shielded CAT5e Ethernet network cable is more secure from electromagnetic interference (EMI) which can result in partial or complete communication loss. A partial loss makes the user experience a slow connection because of poor data transmission. There is repeated re-sending as the sending equipment is trying to send the correct data hence increasing transfer time.

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.
CAT5e is terminated with RJ45 connectors.
