1000 foot Stranded CAT5E Cable
Stranded CAT5E cable is most widely used for patch cables however the flexibility of this cable makes it also suitable for use in other applications. 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, shielded, 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.
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 maybe the plenum rated category 5 which is flame resistant and is used in most hospitals and government buildings that has miles and miles in place at this time. However CAT5E Stranded cable probably makes us the majority of the cable that you can actually see, the stuff that's not ran inside the walls or under the floor. Typically it's called a patch cable, patch cables are the cables that run from the wall to your computer, the router to the modem, the little short cables that we all seem to have an extra one or two of these days.

While terminating Category 5E twisted pair cables be sure the natural twist of each pair is carried through as close as possible 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.
