Cat 6 Jack Installation


An Ethernet port is also called a jack or a socket. The purpose of this port of socket is to connect wired network hardware to a local area network (LAN), a metropolitan area network (LAN), or wide area network (WAN). A Cat 6 Jack is a port that is compatible with Cat 6 Ethernet cable or wires.

Category 6 cable (Cat 6) is a standardized twisted pair cable for Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards. It is used to connect computers and servers to local area networks (LAN) to achieve speeds up to 1 GB per second. Although, using backwards compatibility will reduce the speed.

Cat 6 must meet more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise than Cat 5 and Cat 5e. The cable standard specifies performance of up to 250 MHz, compared to 100 MHz for Cat 5 and Cat 5e. It is most often used in business applications because of this.
