Our line of Cat5e outdoor rated, direct burial patch cables are designed to last where standard indoor cables fail. Each cable is comprised of 24AWG solid bare copper wire arranged in 4 twisted pairs, waterblock tape to repel moisture, a foil shield and drain wire to cut down on electrical interference, and a LSZH rated outer jacket. This multipurpose cable can be used in Outdoor, Outside Plant, Above Ground as well as Direct Burial. These high quality direct burial cables are terminated by hand right here in our central Indiana location. Each individual Ethernet cable is fully tested prior to shipping to ensure maximum performance.
