FAQ of the Month: Cat 5e and Gigabit Networks

Can I run a Gigabit network over Category 5 or Category 5e?


No to CAT 5, or at least almost never. Yes to CAT 5e. Category 5e cable is enhanced over Category 5 to adhere to more stringent standards and is recommended over CAT 5 for speeds above 100 Mbps and up to 1 Gigabit.

However, Category 6 or 6a is recommended over CAT 5e because of it's even higher quality and some properly installed CAT 6 networks can support 10 Gigabit speeds. Although for 10 Gigabit, CAT 6a is recommended.

CAT 7 is rated for 10 Gigabit but supports up to 100 Gigabit.
