Ethernet

Ethernet cables are commonly equipped with and RJ45 connector and are used to create a local area network between computers or between other professional devices. The cables are divided in different groups based on their maximum transfer speeds. 

A solid core network cable like the ones in the contractor series is intended for permanently installed runs. It is less flexible than stranded cable and is more prone to failure if repeatedly flexed. Stranded cable is used for fly leads at patch panel and for connections from wall-ports to end devices, as it resists cracking of the conductors.
