The CAT. 5E Coax: Less attenuation and crosstalk as it has, the CAT. 5E coax is greatly improved in its performance with a high attenuation-to-crosstalk ratio (ACR), minor structural return loss and minimum delays. It mainly used for gigabit Ethernet (1000Mbps) .
The CAT. 6A: Being an advanced CAT. 6, the CAT. 6A is also a kind of standard unshielded twisted pair cable specified in ANSI/ EIA/ TIA- 568B. 2 and ISO Class 6 /E level. Primarily applied in gigabit networks, it is, alike its former, of a transmission frequency of 200 ~ 250 MHz and a maximum transmission speed of 1000 Mbps. However, the CAT. 6A has been improved dramatically in the crosstalk, attenuation and structural return loss.
The distinction between the CAT. 5E Coax and the CAT. 6
The major three of the common LAN network cables are twisted pair, coax and optical cable. Twisted pair is a data transmission line consisting of plenty wire pairs. Common as the daily telephone lines are, it is economical to be widely applied. To connect to the RJ 45 crystal ends, it is divided into STP and the commonly used UTP.
