Cat6 Cable Becomes the Standard for Phone & Computer Networking

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - Cat6 Cable, also referred to as Category 6 Cable, is now becoming the networking standard for people who demand the highest speed and reliability from their Ethernet and phone system. Category phone and networking cables have been evolving for years, and the latest standard of category 6 cable is the most dependable and fastest product in the family of category cables.

"Having a networking cabling product that is capable of performing over 350MHz can be critical for many businesses that receive and send important voice and data to their clients over a network. You can never have your IT network too fast or too reliable," remarked Bryce Huett, the president of Distributor Wire & Cable in Denver, Colorado.

Cat6 Cable is a copper electrical wire manufactured in a larger wire gauge size (23 AWG) than its predecessor cat5e and utilizes a tighter twisting of the four pairs to help increase its performance. This intimate twisting of the pairs, as well as the special bonding agent used to secure the pairs together, all but eliminate any signal disturbance or crosstalk. All category cables are manufactured in both plenum and PVC versions.

In the previous years, category 3, category 5 or category 5 enhanced were satisfactory for most businesses to operate their network smoothly. "In today's struggling economy and competitive business environment, you need to be able to capitalize on any information technology advantage in your infrastructure while still planning for the future of your growing business. You not only get a faster cable with the new cat6 standard but a more reliable one," stated Bryce.
