CAT5 is an Ethernet cable standard defined by the Electronic Industries Association and Telecommunications Industry Association (commonly known as EIA/TIA). CAT5 is the 5th generation of twisted pair Ethernet cabling and the most popular of all twisted pair cables in use today. CAT5 cable contains four pairs of copper wire. CAT5 supports Fast (100 Mbps) Ethernet and comparable alternatives such as ATM. As with all other types of twisted pair EIA/TIA cabling, CAT5 cable runs are limited to a maximum recommended run rate of 100m (328 feet). Although CAT5 cable usually contains four pairs of copper wire, Fast Ethernet communications only utilize two pairs. A new specification for CAT5 cable, CAT5 enhanced (CAT5e), supports short-run Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps) networking by utilizing all four wire pairs and is backward-compatible with ordinary CAT5. Twisted pair cable like CAT5 comes in two main varieties, solid and stranded. Solid CAT5 cable supports longer runs and works best in fixed wiring configurations like office buildings. Stranded CAT5 cable, on the other hand, is more pliable and better suited for shorter-distance, movable cabling such as on-the-fly "patch" cabling.
The maximum recommended length for a UTP Cat5 cable is 100 metres
A 50 foot CAT5 cable can purchased online from Amazon or Overstock for about $6.50 - $7. The price for a 50 foot CAT5 cable at Target is about $15 and $43 at RadioShack.
Cat5 is the standard.
It is cool
Twisted pair cables were invented by Alexander Graham Bell, but the name of the creator of the Cat5 twisted pair cable is unknown.
Cat6 is 250 MHz and cat5 is just 100.
another name for an ethernet cable is a cat5 or cat5e cable
CAT5 and CAT6.
They are the same.
Yes, the e stands for enhanced. The Cat5e cable is just made to more stringent standards the the regular Cat5 cable.
Cat5 cable is the standard cable for computer networking. The "RJ" in RJ15 stands for registered jack. This is the part at the end of a cable that can be used to connect them to computers, phones, etc.
Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6e can be used, u can always use a better cable than required, but not the other way around
Usually Ethernet frames.
The max speed of cat5 Ethernet cable is Mbps.
Telephone is Cat3 while the cable coming form the modem is Cat5
if by "twisted pair cable" you mean a cat5 cable which is commonly used as an ethernet cable. then it´s made of copper.
100 Meters, or 328 Feet.
