Direct Burial/Outdoor rated Cat5e Black Ethernet Cable, Solid, CMX, Waterproof Tape, 24 AWG, Spool, 1000 foot
Our Bulk 1000 foot solid CMXT Cat5e Ethernet cable comes in an easy to use pull box and is ideal for the person looking to make longer permanent outdoor/direct burial network runs during installation/expansion of network infrastructure. Typically this cable will find use between buildings.
This particular cable is a black CMXT solid cable with water proof tape. The individual conductors are 24 AWG (American wire gauge) solid pure copper. Pure copper conductors provide the best signal possible. Our Cat5e Ethernet cable exceeds the EIA/TIA-568-C standard.
Cable was just what I needed for the right price. I will definitely be ordering regularly through cablewholesale.

This product was sold to me as a replacement for gel-filled out-door cable. When it arrived, I just assumed it was up to spec, so I didn't even look at it until it came time to install it. What I discovered was cheap cable. The jacket is about half the thickness of what I normally use, and a bit stiff. The so-called water-proof tape is a joke. I cannot see how porous cotton-like tape can provide a water-proof rating in this cable! Since I was 2-hours from my shop, and there was no other equivalent cable available to complete the job, so I installed it. I only hope that when this cable becomes saturated and no longer works, that Cablewholesale will stand behind it!
CableWholesale Response:The “porous cotton-like tape” you are referring to is the Waterblock tape.
It contains a substance that soaks up the moisture and the tape expands. It keeps moisture away from the conductors.
