[Q] What factors efffect the performance of Cat5e cable?
[A] The performance of Cat5e cable can be effected by several
things, not the least of which is quality of material. Some
installers, in an effort to save money will use the cheapest Cat5e cable they can buy, burdening you with problems
while increasing thier profits. Some cable makers also use the
cheapest Cat5e cable they can buy for the construction
of Cat5e patch cables, and Cat5e crossover cables,
in order to maximize their profits and offer the consumer a
"bargain" cable. This is no bargain when you consider
that the cheaper grades of cable in many cases run at less than
half the speed of high quality cable.
equipment can also have a profound effect on the performance
of Cat5e cable. If you have devices in your network that
are all rated for Cat5e, but you have one device either
defective or not properly rated, then your entire network can
slow down as a result. A network will typicaly operate at the
speed of the slowest device in it.
