CAT5 and CAT6 patch panel which one is better?



  • whats the difference between a CAT5 patch panel and a CAT6 patch panel?



  • Dear Mary,

    Physically, there is no difference, both use RJ45 connectors, the Cat 6 cable is a better quality and designed to handle the Gigabyte data flows, rather then the Megabyte data flows. if your maximum LAN speed is 1Gbps, than no bother with Cat 6.
