Category 6A (augmented)

11

Category 6

Category 6 cable can support a ten gigabit per second 10GBASE-T network to a distance of thirty-seven to fifty-five meters.

12

Category 5

Category 5 copper cables can support a one gigabit per second 1000BASE-T network up to one hundred meters. Ten gigabit per second speeds are not support over category 5 cable.

13

Category 5e

Category 5e (enhanced) is a minor update to category 5, and the Ethernet standards supported for a category 5e cable are identical to those of a category 5 cable. Therefore, category 5e copper cables can support a one gigabit per second 1000BASE-T network up to one hundred meters in length.

14

Category 6A

Category 6A (augmented) cables can support ten gigabit per second 10GBASE-T connections to a distance of one hundred meters.
