What are the advantages of using Cat6 vs Cat5e?


• Backward compatibility to categories 5e, 5 and 3

• Open standard that allows products from different vendors to work together

• Patch cord plug and jack interoperability for modular (RJ-45 type) connections

• Full system specification including testing of components, patch cords, channels and permanent links

• Twice the bandwidth of category 5e with positive Power Sum Attenuation to Cross-Talk Ratio (PSACR) up to 200 MHz

• All specifications for components and cabling are tested to 250 MHz
