1000 foot Solid CAT5E Cable
Solid CAT5E cable is probably by far the most widely used cable to date. Able to support data transmission speeds of the average home or small business user it is the ideal solution and remains the standard for most installers who are running cable throughout a home or retail type business. It is widely available, comes in a variety of colors and is relatively inexpensive.
Our Bulk Cat5e Cable comes packaged in a pull box, providing you with 1000 feet of high quality, unshielded, 4-pair, solid, 350 Mhz Cat5e Cable, ready for termination and routing. Simply pull the length required for your installation straight from the box and terminate at your leisure. These boxes are a great aid in large scale network installations and other long distance cable runs. And like all of our bulk networking CAT5 or CAT6 Cables, these are constructed with only high-quality components that can be counted on for high performance! So let us help you make the connections you need, and help us save the world... from high priced cables.
How many millions of miles of cat5 cable has been ran through schools, businesses, homes, etc is anyone’s guess. Chances are if you were to take just the direct burial cable and the aerial CAT5E running along most roads you’d be able to circle the earth more times than you’d ever imagine. Of course there’s STP cable, short for shielded twisted pair, to be used to reduce electrical interference or the maybe the plenum rated category 5 which is flame resistant and is used in most hospitals and government buildings but it is the CAT5E Solid cable that probably holds the title of the most widely used cable in the world. Because most cable that is ran through a building is not crossing over fluorescent lights or draped over electrical wires the shielded cable is not commonly used and the plenum cable which is intended to be used in plenum spaces (areas such as heating ducts etc. which allow fire and smoke to travel quickly) can be quite expensive since it is coated with a jacket that reduces the levels of toxicity in the smoke. Of course there is stranded cat5 cable as well but stranded cable is most often used for making patch cables because it tends to be more flexible and lends itself to getting coiled up under a desk (and sometimes stuck in a vacuum cleaner).

While terminating Category 5E twisted pair cables be sure the natural twist of each pair is carried through as close as practical to the point of mechanical termination. TIA/EIA 568-B.2 requires no more than 0.5 inch (13mm) untwisted for Category 5E as it will effect performance at high bit rates. Cabling should be secured and placed in a manner which prevents kinking and tight cinching. Do not excessively bend the cable greater than four times the cable diameter. Cabling should not be subject to greater than 25 pounds of pulling tension (110N).
For snag resistant operation the box must be handled and stored in the upright position. Be sure to dispense / pull cable while the box is in the upright position only. For ideal conditions this cable must be stored at or above 32 degrees fahrenheit 48 hours prior to installation.
