CAT 5 E Network Cables
CAT5E Ethernet, Patch & Bulk Cables
The Cat5e crossover cable is an Ethernet cable used to connect two devices directly to each other. Most commonly it is used for connecting two computers or two switches together. They are the counterpart to patch cables, which connect two different devices.
Cat5 crossover cables are also used in networking, data transfer, and phone lines. They can connect DSL or cable modems to computers as well. Whether you need them for your business, home, or temporary work space, all of the Cat5 and Cat5e crossover cables from CableWholesale come with a lifetime warranty, so you never have to worry about product failures.
One of the most popular options CableWholesale offers is the gray one-foot Cat5e Crossover Cable, which features a snagless/molded boot. The Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) patch cable with molded boots provide for easy installation and extra protection for the RJ45 connector and clip. The conductors are 24 American wire gauge (AWG) stranded pure copper. The stranded copper allows for increased flexibility and improved signal performance. The RJ45 is the actual connector on each end of the Cat5 crossover cable. The connectors on this particular design are made of gold to prevent corrosion and extend longevity.
The primary difference between a Cat5e crossover cable and Cat5 crossover cable is in the amount of Megabits per second (Mbps) it can support. The standard version can support a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet network, while the Cat5e cables can support Ethernet networks running at speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps.
Ethernet crossover cables are easy to use, inexpensive, and overall an efficient means to connecting two devices for whatever you need. Check out our quality options at reduced bulk-rate prices today.
