Benefits of Upgrading Network Cabling
One of the benefits of upgrading from Cat5 to Cat6 is that Cat6 cables provide additional shielding that is lacking in Cat5 cabling. When you open up either of these cabling options you will find four pairs of twisted wires. However, in Cat6 cabling you will also find additional shielding material that separates these twisted pairs, providing more protection against crosstalk and degradation of the signal. This makes the Cat6 cabling easier to work with because there is less of a need to route it in certain ways to protect against interference.
Another benefit with Cat6 cabling is that it still uses the same RJ45 end connectors that earlier cabling standards also use. This means that you don’t need to change out connection jacks and other equipment because of incompatible connectors. These cables also have the same four pairs of twisted wires as Cat5 has so working with Cat6 cabling is very similar.
Finally, the potential speeds available with Cat6 cabling are up to 10 times faster than compared to Cat5 cabling. As more and more locations get faster and faster internet speeds, being able to take advantage of these speed increases makes Cat6 a wise choice for future-proofing your building and business.
