Category 5E 1000ft

The original Category 5 standard was suitable for LAN transmission standards up to 155Mb/s, including all the various forms of fast Ethernet up to 100Mb/s. When Gigabit Ethernet was introduced in 1998 it was discovered that the original Cat 5 specification wasn’t good enough to guarantee error-free performance. Extra technical requirements were added to the original Cat 5 specification, such as Return Loss, Delay, Delay Skew and Power Sum Crosstalk measurements to ensure reliable operation of Gigabit Ethernet. The improved range of parameters became known as Enhanced Category 5 or Cat 5e. Cat 5 has long been superseded by Cat 5e. The electrical performance for Cat 5e requirements is up to 100MHz.
