This Cat5E STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cable is perfect for an indoor networking application in a noisy environment. This rating of cable contains a shielding designed to resist crosstalk and electromagnetic interference that comes with networking in close proximity to other cable sources.
Considered the Industry Standard for most network installations, Category 5E (Cat5E) is a "twisted pair" network cable used for carrying data signals at speeds of up to 350MHz of Bandwidth.
Our Cat5E Solid Shielded Bulk Cable comes wrapped in a sturdy CMR-rated PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Jacket, built to withstand high levels of stress, pulling, and pushing.
Designed for more straight-forward, simple installations, this particular style of Solid cable is perfect for most installations where cable runs do not require several bends and twists in the line.
For this particular cable, the gauge is 24 AWG, which is a diameter of about 0.0201 Inches, or 0.511mm. 24AWG is the Industry Standard for any typical network cable installation. American Wire Gauge (AWG) is the standardized gauging system for measuring wire sizes.
Since bulk cable is generally used in intervals, the box that it comes in is almost as important as the cable itself. This is the reason why our boxes are reinforced to provide excellent protection and are made with a simple pull-through design to keep your bulk cable free of kinks and knots while being pulled from the box.
