There are 8 wires in cat 5-e cable.

another name for an ethernet cable is a cat5 or cat5e cable

Yes, the e stands for enhanced. The Cat5e cable is just made to more stringent standards the the regular Cat5 cable.

Typically you would use a CAT5e or CAT6 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) patch cable. Specifying CAT5e or CAT6 pretty much defined everything about the cable except its length.

One may use Cat5e network cable in bulk to connect to the internet or ethernet. Large amounts of cable may be used in a business or office setting to improve signals and connections.

One can purchase a cat5e patch cable at a local department store such as Walmart, Target, AAFES, and the NEX. One could also purchase online at sites such as Amazon.

The standard for CAT5e is 100 metres

It depends on how many wires are in the cable. The more conductors in the cable set the longer it will take to splice them.

paired cable contains 2 conductors and a cable containing 3 conductors is called a triad.Used for 3 wire transmitters.

CAT6 doubles the bandwidth of CAT5 and CAT5e to 250 mhz. It is backwards compatible with CAT5, so is a good choice of cable if you aren't sure what to choose.

Cat6 cable is very similar to Cat5e cable. It is, simply put, just held to a stricter standard than Cat5e cable. Since Cat6 is made to a higher standard than Cat5e it will support higher speed transfers. Cat5e cable can be used for networks up to a 1Gbps speed while Cat6 is currently rated for up to 10Gbps speed. Cat7 takes this even further and supports 40Gbps. For normal usage on networks up to 1Gbps and no run being longer than 100 meters, Cat5e is completely sufficient for the network. To ensure forwards compatibility it may be worthwhile to install Cat6 cable while you're at it so you don't hit a speed cap in your network down the road.

RJ-45 is the terminating end on a cat5 cat5e cable :) it contains 8 twisted wire pairs, hope this answers your question. Note use cat5e cables and u wont have to worry ....

Category 5, which if it is a Cat5E, is capable of 1000BaseT operation.

The term core represents each individual conductor within a cable, and a pair is two cores (or two conductors) within a cable. For example if you have a 3 core cable, then the cable has 3 separate conductors in it (3 separate cables within the PVC coating). A 3 pair cable would be 3 sets of 2 cores, so this would have 6 conductors within the cable.

A twisted pair cable consists of two copper conductors.

A single-phase cable will have a line and a neutral conductor and, possibly, but not necessarily, an earth (ground) conductor. A high-voltage three-phase cable will have three line conductors. A low-voltage three-phase cable is likely to have three line conductors and a neutral conductor.

You can use the Cat6 in place of the Cat5e but not the other way around. It is a higher rating than the Cat5e.

Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6e can be used, u can always use a better cable than required, but not the other way around

A striaght CAT5e cable for a 10/100 switch. Generally today you do not need a "Crossover" cable. They used to be required in the past , but most switches today auto detect the cable type.

STP CAT5e STP uses a covering around the pairs of wires inside the cable that protects it from electromagnetic interference caused by electrical motors, transmitters, or high tension lines. It is more expensive than UTP cabling so it's only used when the situation demands it.

The "e" in Cat-5 stands for enhanced. A Cat-5 cable has more twists than a Cat-5 cable, meaning that there will be less crosstalk and interference.

Core Flex = one conductor per cable Tech cable = 3 conductors per cable

UTP is a general class of cable that encompasses most variations of Cat3, Cat5 and Cat6 cables. It indicated that the cable is composed of multiple pairs of conductors and that those conductors are twisted in pairs inside the jacket.

Four: Generally it's Green(solid and striped), Orange(solid and striped), Blue(solid and striped), Brown(solid and striped)
