In prospect, it is always ideal to install the lastest technology, especially when deciding between Category 5e (Cat5e) and Category 6 (Cat6) cables. While the the former is a currently the cheaper option, it would be very expensive in the future to upgrade this cabling, which usually is installed in walls and ceilings. What’s the difference between the two? Cat5e cables allow bandwidth at 100Mhz, whereas Cat6 cables go up to 200MHz. This permits your network to have increased reliability, improved transmission, and less external noise.

Here at Fancom, we know what the importance of network reliability and future integration is to you. To ensure these crucial components are met, we will always suggest and support the installation of Cat 6 cables. Have questions? Give us a call!
