In the simplest terms, data or network cabling involves multiple devices within an IT network being connected by cables. This IT cabling comes in a number of categories such as CAT5e, CAT6 and fibre options. Typical data cabling installations will run from a specific device to a central communication cabinet to help facilitate the flow of data. Cat5e, Cat6 or Cat6a cables, which are made from copper, can run at speeds of up to 1000 and 10,000Mbps respectively, but only over distances of 100m. Fibre cables, meanwhile, are also capable of speeds of up to 10,000Mbps, but this can be maintained over distances of up to 500m – 2Km. Copper cables are used for shorter distances and fibre gives you more flexibility over longer distances.
