Cat-6 network cabling is used as the cabling infrastructure for 10 BASE-T (Ethernet), 100 BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), 1000 BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet, or GbE) and 10 GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet, or 10 GbE) networks. The Cat 6 standard provides performance of up to 500 MHz for the newer Cat6 standard and can be used up to a maximum length of 100 meters (55 meters for 10GBASE-T networks).
Cat 6 standards were first released in 2002 as part of the Telecommunications Industry Association’s TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1 document specification. Cat6 is backward compatible with the Cat 3, Cat 5 and Cat 5e cable standards, and as with Cat 5 and Cat 5e cabling, Cat 6 cables consist of four unshielded twisted pairs (UTP) of copper wire terminated by RJ45 connectors. In addition to its support for higher performance than the Cat 5 specification, the Cat 6 standard also includes more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise. While Cat 6 is expected to supersede Cat5e cabling in the future, Cat 5e types of cable continue to be popular for use in network installations.
The difference between Cat 5e and Cat6 Ethernet Cable:
Cat6 cable is more reliable at higher speeds than Cat5e. Cat 6 is backward compatible with Cat 5e, so you can mix and match, but they are different on the inside, where it counts. If you mix them, you’ll never reach the full performance level you would if you used only cat6 cable, cat6 jacks, cat6 mod plugs and cat 6 patch panels. Until recently, most home and office routers supported lower speeds, so Cat6 wasn't necessary, however Gigabit Ethernet routers have now become more common. Both Cat5e and cat6 cables can both work with Gigabit Ethernet. Cat 5e cable is enhanced to reduce interference so that it can reliably deliver gigabit speeds. However, Gigabit Ethernet still pushes cable to its limits so cat6 may be the prefered choice. Cat6 cable is certified to handle Gigabit speeds, it's meant to handle it and it does. It's also suitable for 10-Gigabit although at that point, you're pushing the limits of Cat6. Cat6 cable also has more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise than Cat 5e does. That means you'll get fewer errors on a system operating via Cat6.
Whether you choose to use Cat 6 or Cat5e, network performance effectively boils down to Signal-to-Noise Ratio at the Receiver. All the different noise sources need to be taken into account, including Alien Crosstalk and Impulse noise. The biggest benefit of Category 6 cabling is the much-improved Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) using the Bandwidth employed by today’s applications and also for future applications. The main result is that Category 6 provides better Signal-to-Noise Ratio compared to Category 5e over a wide frequency range.
