Bulk Computer Cable Cat5E, Cat6, Cat6A, Cat7 is available for voice and data, and video applications. Cablesupply.com carries wholesale bulk ethernet cable in Cat5E (Category 5 enhanced), Cat6, Cat6A (Category6 Augmented), and Cat7 which are a twisted pair cable consisting of four pairs. Data lines require all four pairs however four analog voice lines could be used on the same cable because analog voice only requires one pair. This could be useful if one were running four separate lines to a single location; just one cable could be punched down onto four separate RJ11 jacks.

Ethernet cables come in a variety of colors but most commonly used colors are white and blue. The color does not affect the performance of the cable in any way but can be useful when running multiple lines. For example: all data lines could be run on blue cable and all voice lines could be run on only white cables to easily differentiate your groups of cables expediting the drop and termination of the cable. Our Cat6 bulk Ethernet cable is backwards compatible with our bulk Cat5E cable and even Cat3; however, if a lower graded jack is used with Cat6 cable it does reduce it to that grade of cable quality; similarly if a Cat6 jack were used to terminate a Cat5e cable it would have no Cat6 qualities.

The main difference between bulk Cat6 Ethernet cable and bulk Cat5e Ethernet cable is that Cat6 has reduced crosstalk or EMI (Electro-Magnetic-Interference) and where Cat5e have a 100 MHz performance, Cat6 can perform up to 250MHz, and Cat6a can perform all the way to 500MHz. Crosstalk is an undesired affect that occurs when other nearby cables, motors, the electrical pulse from a nuclear blast or other electronic devices interfere with the transmission on each cable therefore slowing down the flow of information or possibly cutting it off all together. Crosstalk can be greatly reduced in Cat5e and Cat6 cable by buying bulk Ethernet cable that is shielded. Shielded cable has an aluminum shield around the four twisted pairs; this shield absorbs any potential crosstalk or EMI but this electricity needs to be drained somewhere so the cable also has a drain wire that must be connected to a ground. Though there are many options for bulk Ethernet cable, learning which cable best suits your needs is important but being over prepared for your needs is not a bad decision as your cable will most likely outlive your devices which will require higher grade cable as time goes on.

Bulk Cat5e Ethernet cable, Bulk Cat6 cable and Cat6a Ethernet cable, and Cat7 Ethernet cable come in a wide variety of types and standards. Types of bulk Ethernet cable include: PVC or plenum coated, UV protected, shielded, outdoor direct burial cable, and cable with a messenger. Bulk Ethernet cable comes in boxes of 500 ft and 1,000 ft and start at less than $60 a box. Buying Ethernet cable in bulk can be a huge money saver as the 500 feet or 1,000 feet of cable can be used for cabling or making Ethernet patch cables. With a couple mod plugs and a crimper kit, cable can be cut at any desired length and mod plugs crimped on to create custom length bulk Cat5e or Cat6 patch cords to accommodate a variety of applications.

PVC coating is the least expensive and the standard coating of bulk Ethernet cable. It provides a basic protection from physical damage to the cable. Plenum coating is a fire rated coating that if it were on fire the gases, unlike PVC, would not be toxic. UV protected bulk Ethernet cable is intended for outdoor use and protects the wires within the cable from deteriorating due to UV damage from the sun. Bulk Ethernet UV outdoor cable can also have a messenger on it; a messenger is a steel cable that is attached outside of the Ethernet cable to help support the cable from sagging and stretching when suspended between two aerial locations.
