CAT5e cable contains pairs of copper wire. It supports Speedy Ethernet speeds (up to 100 Mbps). As with all other types of twisted pair EIA/TIA cabling, CAT5 cable runs are limited to a maximum recommended run length of 100m (328 feet).
Also, CAT5e is an Ethernet network cable standard defined by the Electronic Industries Association & Telecommunications Industry Association (often known as EIA/TIA). CAT5 is the fifth generation of twisted pair Ethernet & is the most popular of all twisted pair cables in use today.
Twisted pair cable like CAT5 comes in 2 main varieties, solid and stranded. Solid CAT5 cable supports longer length runs and works best in fixed wiring configurations like office buildings, schools and industrial locations. Stranded CAT5 cable, on the other hand, is more pliable and better suited for shorter-distance, movable cabling such as on-the-spot patch cabling.
