CAT50 cable contains four pairs of copper wire. CAT50 supports Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps), has a limited cable run of 100m and supports frequencies of 100 MHz. Although the CAT50 cable has four pairs of copper wire, Fast Ethernet communications only utilize two pairs. The new specification for CAT50 cable, supports short-run Gigabit Ethernet (1000Mbps) networking by utilizing all four wire pairs. This cable also supports frequencies of 100 MHz and it is backwardcompatible with CAT5.

The 100Ω cables are ideal for the transmission of digital signals. This impedance is mostly used in our wide range of UTP cables.
A stranded copper wire is more flexible and easier to install than a large single-strand wire with the same cross section. Stranding improves wire life in applications where flexibility is needed. A particular cross section of a stranded conductor gives it essentially the same resistance characteristics as a single-strand conductor, but with added flexibility.
For ease of installation these bulk cables are provided with an indication on every meter of the cable. This enables installers to have a clear and efficient indication of how many meters they still have available on their reel.
CAT5E can handle a gigabit Ethernet network (1000Mbps at 100Mhz) and is designed to reduce crosstalk better that CAT5.
Aluminum foil shielding is ideal for reflecting electromagnetic interference (EMI) and is often used in combination with a braided wire to absorb EMI.
