An Ethernet or data network is comprised of several components for the delivery of data communications. The standards for these components have been decided by the Telecommunications Industry Association. TIA has established standards for network architecture, cable specifications, connector specifications and performance requirements.
  • CAT6 Jumper Cables

    CAT5 Jumpers (or CAT5e, Cat6 and so on) are short cables terminated at each end with a RJ-45 plug. These jumpers use a stranded copper conductor as opposed to a solid one to prevent wire breakage or excessive bending.

    Cat6 jumpers are available in 5 lengths from 3’ to 14’ and in many different jacket colors for easy identification. Shielded jumpers are also available to eliminate crosstalk when many jumpers are located together.
  • Network Cable

    CAT5e and CAT6 cables are the most common type of network cabling and are often referred to as CAT5 cables. Bulk cable and RJ-45 connectors may be purchased separately to satisfy longer and more specific cable length needs. CAT5 cable is typically sold on a spindle or in a box, in continuous lengths of 1000 feet.
  • CAT5/CAT6 Modular Plugs/Jacks

    RJ-45 Jack or Plug connectors provide the connection between devices in a network.

    The RJ-45 connection was developed by Bell Telephone systems in the 1970's and has been adopted by the FCC and EIA. RJ stands for Registered Jack and 45 is the series of the connector. The RJ-45 connector is a modular type connector that is also referred to as an 8P8C, since it has 8 contact pins for 8 conductors. The RJ-45 connection has been adopted worldwide for data networks.
    The wiring of the conductors to the RJ-45 has also been established by the TIA with two standards TIA-586A and TIA-586B.
