Below is a list of widely used Patch Lead/Cable Terminology and their definitions: ANSI/TIA 568 C.2 Transmission Requirements Return Loss The loss of signal power as a result of signal reflection at a discontinuity in the cable. Insertion Loss The loss of signal power that results from devices inline. Near End Crosstalk Loss (NEXT) Loss […]
Cat5e Cabling Speed The speed of Cat5e cabling supports high-performance networking. Category 5 enhanced cables can deliver Gigabit Ethernet speeds of up to 1000 Mbps. Devices connected by the cable, including switches and routers, should also support the desired data speeds. Cable technology is backward compatible. Cat5e provides a bandwidth of 100 MHz performance, though […]

Find out about telephone cable that complies with CW1308,
CW1308B, and CW1128 standards for internal and external
A fibre optic patch cable is a shorter length of fibre optic
cable terminated with connectors at each end. It may be called a patch cord
Learn the difference between T568A and T568B, which define
wiring schemes for terminating Cat cable to eight-pin modular
Learn how crosstalk specifications vary between Cat5e, Cat6
and Cat6a cable. Cat6a has improved alien crosstalk capabilities over
Cable speed is included in the Cat6, Cat6a and Cat5estandards. Cat5e and Cat6 support Gigabit Ethernet. Cat6/6a cable has10-Gigabit Ethernet capabilities.
Crossover patch leads are used for direct network
connections, such as linking computer to computer. T-568A and T-568B wiring
schemes are both used.
See an overview on TIA/EIA standards for Category 5e, Cat6
and Cat6a cables that define performance parameters, Ethernet suitability
and the T568A/T568B wiring schemes.
