cat6 vs cat5

Recommended Posts

any benefit of using 6 over 5..or is that not a concern?


As a network guy, I use Cat6 in new installs


As for performance, no difference


Cat6 and Cat5 (or Cat5e), have the same 100m max distance, can support up to Gigabit Ethernet (Cat6 can do 10Gb Ethernet in theory, but is not widely adopted outside the data center anyways)
