Cat5e Network Patch Cable is the version of the enhanced category 5 patch cable, widely used in structured cabling for Ethernet and LAN networks. Provides international standards performance of 100 MHz bandwidth(due to the production tech improved, cat5e patch cables’ performance can be up to 350MHz ), also work with 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX(Fast Ethernet), and  Gigabit Ethernet.
The components of Cat5e Patch Cords:
1, Two Cat5e RJ45 modular connectors
2, Four twisted pairs cable.
The types of Cat5e Cable:
1, Refers to the electronic characters, Cat5e Patch Cable can be sorted into UTP, S/FTP and SFTP;

As a common buyer, how can you know the quality of the patch cable is good or bad? Today our engineer will show you the most easy way to see the difference. Seeing from the front view of a patch cable:
1.If you see the copper flash, means this patch cable be made of copper conductor wires, so we generally can think it as a good quality cable;
2.If you see the silver flash, means this cable be made of CCA or CCS conductor wire, so this cable is not so good.
