If you’re located in an area where there’s an inordinate amount of cross-talk or other types of interference, or want to buy cabling which will be ready for network demands which are currently only experienced in major corporations or data centers (for example, 10 gigabit networking over long throws), you might want to consider Cat6 cables instead of their Cat5e counterparts (and we sell both at SG Installations). However, for just about every application short of a high-tech company’s internal networking, Cat5e will perform perfectly now, and for many years to come.
Before you resort to expensive system upgrades or a switch to WiFi for your network operation, why not try upgrading your cables first?
