Ethernet cable, commonly known as cat5e or cat 6 structured cabling.
Cat 5e (“enhanced”), is designed enabling speeds of up to 1000 Mbps – or “Gigabit Ethernet” as it’s more commonly known.
In particular Cat 5e is the most common kind of cable you’ll find being sold. It is very much adequate for general use in the home.
All four pairs in the cable are used for gigabit speeds, blue,orange,green and brown pairs.
Cat 6 can in theory handle up to 10 gigabits per section – that’s 10,000 Mbps – at a maximum of around 37 meters in length.
It is overkill for the home because you won’t find any consumer switches that support those speeds.
If you are building a new house and wanted something to connect each floor together with, perhaps consider Cat 6 for the sake
of future-proofing, but otherwise don’t go out of your way to buy Cat 6 cabling.
It is completely compatible with existing Cat 5e and Cat 5 devices.
Physically, Cat 6 structured cabling has more twists in each pair, and has a plastic separator spine
running through the center, reducing crosstalk and enabling the higher speeds.
Cat 6a is a newer standard designed to support 10 Gbps over the full 100 meter length.
Complete overkill for domestic use
