Every home network is
different, just like the
needs of your customers.
Use this guide to learn about the following networking solutions and how to
pair the best products to the right application.
Wired Ethernet networks utilize Cat
5e, Cat 6, or Cat 6a twisted pair cable
to transmit data around the home.
POWERLINE
The HomePlug AV standard
allows a wired Ethernet network
to be expanded over the existing
electrical power lines in the home.
WIRELESS
Wireless networks use the
Wi-Fi standard to transmit data to
mobile devices around the home.
COAX
The MoCA (Multimedia over
Coax Alliance) standard allows
a wired Ethernet network to be
expanded over the existing coax
cable system in the home.

Wi-Fi is a shared bandwidth medium. This
means that Wi-Fi networks slow down
and lose range when additional networks
and connected devices are broadcasting
in the same vicinity. Implementing
a hybrid networking solution with
both wired and wireless connections
can mitigate bandwidth issues.

While powerline networks are able to
cross phases, they are not always able to
cross surge protection. If you’re unsure
whether a powerline network will work
properly in an application, simply plug
the adapters in and within seconds,
the status LEDs will either flash red or
green. If you get the red status, consider
a wireless or coax network for coverage.

CAT 3
Best application: 10BaseT Ethernet at 10Mbps
Bandwidth: 16MHz
NETWORKING CABLE
CAT 5
Best application: 100BaseT Ethernet at 100Mbps
Bandwidth: 100MHz
REFERENCE GUIDE
CAT 3
was a popular cabling format
for computer network
administrators in the early 1990s. It was
superseded when Cat 5 became standardized
because of its higher performance. It is
used only in two-line phone systems.
CAT 5
CAT 5e
Best application: 1000BaseT Ethernet at 250Mbps
Bandwidth: 100MHz
was developed to support faster
100BaseT Ethernet standards. When
Gigabit Ethernet (1000BaseT) standards were
introduced, the Cat 5 cable became vulnerable
to crosstalk, which caused interference
and signal loss within the transmission.
CAT 5e
superseded Cat 5 in 1999. It was
designed to reduce crosstalk
when transmitting 1000BaseT Ethernet. The “e” in
Cat 5e stands for “enhanced”. It is the most widely
used cable in residential installations today.
CAT 6
CAT 6
Best application: 1000BaseT at 1000Mbps (1Gbps)
Bandwidth: 250MHz
was designed to transmit
1000BaseT at Gigabit speeds.
Cat 6 is a wider cable than Cat 5e with more
twists within its pairs to reduce crosstalk.
Cat 6 can also be used in shorter runs for
10GBaseT Ethernet, but is vulnerable to alien
crosstalk in a crowded cable environment.
CAT 6a
was designed to transmit
10GBaseT, even in commercial
environments. Cat 6a defends against alien
crosstalk, which is crosstalk between
cables in a crowded installation. The “a”
in Cat 6a stands for “augmented”.
Best application: 10GBaseT at 10Gbps
Bandwidth: 500MHz
Network speeds are typically calculated
in Bits, while files are calculated
in Bytes. A Byte is 8 Bits.
WHY ARE NETWORKING
CABLES TWISTED?
The twists in a cable are meant to defend
against crosstalk on the line. The physics
of this phenomenon are complex, but the
twists prevent the signal running on one
twisted pair in the cable from jumping to
another twisted pair, causing interference.
