What is a Cat6 cable?
A form of cable used in structured networking, category 6 (Cat6) cables boast an improvement in attainable speeds over Cat5 cables. Cat6 cables have a tighter unshielded twisted pair (UTP) arrangement with an internal divider, which further improves reduced signal noise and interference from other close proximity cables. A higher transmission frequency of 250MHz means that these cables are capable of up to 1000Mbps over a run of 100 metres.

A faster transfer speed of up to 10Gbps can be attained with these cables, but only at a reduced maximum length of 55 metres. Cat6 cables are backwards compatible with 10Base-T (10Mbps) and 100Base-TX (100Mbps) networks.

Why would I use this cable?
Ethernet cables are typically used in creating a network of wired devices. This is commonly achieved by using Ethernet ports to connect equipment and devices to a network switch or internet router. This connection then provides you with access to a local area network (LAN) resources or to the internet. It offers a high speed, uninterruptable connection that is ideal for gaming, media streaming or video conferencing.

Ethernet cables are available in different colours, which lets you co-ordinate network cables from different devices. Helping you in keeping your network cables organised and tidy.

What is the difference between Patch Cable and Crossover Cable?
Crossover cables are most often used to connect two devices of the same type, for example two computers – via network interface controllers – or to connect two switches to each other. This is commonly used for gaming to create a wired local area network.

Patch cables, or straight-through cables are used to connect devices of different types, for example a computer to a network switch, a computer to a hub or a network switch to a hub. This is most commonly used to connect a device to the internet, either straight from your computer to your modem or router, or into a network switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cat 6 flat Not had them long enough to make an in depth review but the outer sheath of the cable is very flexible allowing to bend freely without fear of wearing. RJ45 connectors seem to be well made. At the end of the day it’s a network cable and it works

i need an ethernet cable that will fit into the exit slot on the back of my brennan b2. it needs to be quite a thin flexible cable.

Asked by: gazzer
On the assumption that you only need a 25 cm cable. (you asked this question on a 25 cm length) This cable should be exactly what you need. (we do longer cables too)
