Cat 6A | The Future For One-Cable Installations Delivering More Power and Greater Bandwidth

Cat 6A | The Future For One-Cable Installations Delivering More Power and Greater Bandwidth

While Cat5e and Cat6 Ethernet Cabling are still considered by many to be excellent solutions for cabling installations, and less costly than Cat6A, there are definitely good reasons why Cat6A is a much more desirable option to support the upcoming advances in Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology.

Cost is always a driving factor when putting together a bid, and there’s

17 Neat Cable Bundles That Will Delight Your OCD

Unruly Ethernet cables not only make troubleshooting more difficult, but they can also pose a fire hazard as they can decrease heat dissipation in a networking environment. But when properly organized, networking cables can make for marvelous displays of artwork (and showcase very patient IT personnel). Whether you opt for the traditional blue and yellow networking cables, or are

How to Maintain Your PoE Cable Bundles Cool

PoE cable bundles generate heat due to the power transmission that occurs through the copper conductors of standard networking cables.  Wiring cabinets or networking sites that do not allow for proper heat dissipation can lead to cable bundles with higher-temperature cores. Cable bundles with higher temperature

New 802.3bw Ethernet Auto Standard Leaves LVDS Cables in the Dust

Ethernet is expanding its utilization beyond computer network applications and now officially occupies automobile network architectures with IEEE’s approval of the 802.3bw standard.  The 802.3bw standard specifies “100BASE-T1 – 100 Mbit/s Ethernet over a single twisted pair for automobile applications”.

Ethernet Reduces Weight And Cost

The new standard will allow for the replacement of low-voltage differential signaling

CAT5E vs. Cat6 Vs Cat7

Demystifying Ethernet Types— Difference between Cat5e, Cat 6, and Cat7

Ethernet represents the plumbing pipes of the Internet. Many network installers and system integrators are familiar with Cat5e and Cat6 cables with RJ45 connectors. But the term “Ethernet”, co-invented by Robert Metcalfe, encompasses an entire range of

Bob Metcalfe’s 14 Hilarious Life-Lessons from Reddit’s AMA

When Robert Metcalfe developed the Ethernet, he didn’t foresee that he would be establishing the new technology as the default plumbing pipes that would support the internet. His marketing aptitude ultimately led him to establish Ethernet as an industry standard but not before failing his Harvard

The Road to Faster Gigabit Ethernet

The evolution of Ethernet has gone from a paltry 10 Mbit/s to 100Mbit/s with the introduction of Gigabit Ethernet back in 1999. Gigabit Ethernet however, has quickly gained popularity over Fast Ethernet, transporting Ethernet frames at 1,000 Mbit/s. According to a report from Cisco however, these speeds will not be fast enough to sustain the future demand for mobile traffic and
