NETWORKING GUIDE designed to be better.™ DATA NETWORKING The home network is more critical than ever before. ARE YOU CAPITALIZING ON THE OPPORTUNITY? 2 WWW.LEGRAND.US/ONQ 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. *Reference page 8 for wiring diagrams and additional features of each networking technology. WWW.LEGRAND.US/ONQ DATA NETWORKING WIRED 3 ON-Q WIRED NETWORKING A professionally installed wired Ethernet network is the best solution to future-proof a home network for the fastest possible speeds. It is most costeffective when installed in a new home’s structured wiring system. ENCLOSURE-MOUNTED ROUTERS AND SWITCHES GIGABIT ETHERNET (Throughput up to 1000Mbps) PART NO.

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. ] ON-Q COAX NETWORKING Since most televisions are already connected to an existing coax port, utilizing a MoCA network offers an ideal retrofit solution to provide streaming entertainment.

It was superseded when Cat 5 became standardized because of its higher performance.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 CAT 5e superseded Cat 5 in 1999.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.
