      Ethernet CAT5 / CAT6 Cables

      At Markertek, we carry a diverse selection of heavy duty ethernet cable, with different category numbers that indicate speed and performance. First, you'll need to determine whether ethernet cat5 (i.e. "category 5"), cat5e, or cat6 cables are more suited for the project at hand. From there, you can narrow down your shopping search to a specific ethernet cable reel, adapter, or standalone cable. We're proud to offer ethernet cables from respected brands like Tripp Lite and TecNec.

      Here are the key features that distinguish ethernet cable categories:

      • Cat5: Limited when compared with cat5e and cat6 cables. It can handle speeds of 10/100 Mbps and a 100 Mhz bandwidth, but this is quite slow by today's standards.
      • Cat5e: Offers up to 1 Gbps speeds at 100 meters, and a 350 Mhz bandwidth.
      • Cat6: Offers up to 10 Gbps speeds at 55 meters, and a 550 Mhz bandwidth.

      After determining the right category for your needs, it's time to find a cable reel that is long enough to make the connection. For example, the Stage Ninja CAT6-65-S holds 65 feet of shielded cat6 cable in a retractable housing. It's the perfect design for storing your ethernet cable securely, so that it lasts for years to come.

We offer a 100% Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee and free shipping on any order, even if you're buying a single cable. Thank you for visiting Markertek!
