Ethernet Cables, Reels & Accessories
Ethernet cables carry your data signal between devices. A quality cable with sufficient shielding enables the lowest attenuation of the signal, resulting in higher signal integrity across the span, which in turn results in the highest possible data speeds.
Cables come in a variety of jackets, or outer sheaths, which give the cable cerain properties like UV stabilisation (see our Telco Wildcat range).
For any modern data installation we recommend using the highest category possible to future proof the installation. Certain local legislation can require a specific category of cable to be installed.
This table lists the different types of Ethernet cable variants.
