For many years the standard Ethernet cable has been the Category 5 (Cat-5). However, the Category 6 (Cat-6), first released in 2002, provides performance up to 250 MHZ. The newer Cat 6a standard performs up to 500 MHZ. Both the Cat 6 and Cat 6a can be used up to 100 meters (55 meters for 10GBASE-T Networks) and is backward compatible with the Cat 3, Cat 5 and Cat 5e cable standards. Like the Cat 5 and Cat 5e cabling, the Cat 6 cables consist of four unshielded twisted pairs (UTP) of copper wire terminated by RJ45 Connectors.
