Title: Installing Ethernet Cables? Keep These Things in Mind!

Installing Ethernet Cables? Keep These Things in
  • In todays world of Internet of Things and
    Industrial Automation, the utility of
    Ethernet Cables has become inevitable. According
    to the concept of Internet of Things, even the
    everyday objects have network connectivity,
    which enables them to send and receive
    data. But in order to make the data
    exchange smooth, it is important to
    install Ethernet Cables properly.
  • By doing so, you will be able to decrease the
    downtime and enable the exchange of data
    between your data systems and network
    devices like modems, routers, adapters and other
    objects that ask for a connection. If you are
    installing Ethernet Network Cables, you need to
    keep certain things in mind.
  • How to plan for Ethernet Cable Installation?
  • Once you have decided the place where
    all your cables will terminate, you can
    plan your Ethernet cable installation. You must
    remember that the location for your cables
    should be big enough to accommodate your
    ongoing project. Also consider the future
    data network expansion plans in your plant.
  • In case your cable is going to be exposed to
    extreme environmental conditions, select a cable
    which is flexible and resistant to UV light,

  • oil, chemicals, cutting, abrasion, oil etc.
    Thereafter, you need to take the following
  • Choosing an Ethernet Cable
  • Before choosing networking cables for yourself,
    you need to know the features of each Ethernet
    cable. Details of each of these cables are given

CAT5E CAT 5E cables can replace CAT5 and CAT3
and support up to 100Mbps at 100MHz. It also
curbs cross talk and offers good
speed. CAT6 CAT 6 cables are backward
compatible with the previous version of CAT
cables, can be run in long lengths, have bigger
gauge wires and support up to 10 Gb/s at
250 MHz bandwidth. CAT6 cables are also
longer lasting. CAT 6A cables on the other
hand enhances the capacity of CAT6 as it can
perform up to 500Mhz and can cover distances up
to 100 meters.
  • CAT 7A This type of Ethernet Cable is a
    good alternative to fiber optic cabling. It
    supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet and frequencies of
    up to 1000Mhz.
  • Things To Keep in Mind
  • While you are installing Ethernet Cables, Keep
    the following things in mind
  • Cross Power the Cable at 90 degrees In case you
    have to cross the data network cabling, keep
    it at a 90º degrees and you can avoid
  • Dont pack them together If the cables
    are kinked, they can affect the network and
    compromise with the quality of cables. So try not
    to create a snake pit out of it.
  • Go for different colours Choose different
    colours for different cables so that there is no
    confusions and your data lines can remain
  • Keep the cables away from risky places In
    case if you are running the cable through
    ceiling or wall, ensure that it doesnt
    come in contact with the ceiling tiles. Also,
    dont run it over water pipes and electrical
    conduit as it is dangerous and might cause

5. Make use of an efficient wire
management system It is important to
organize patch cabling between the racks. To
organize efficiently, you can use wire bundling
device or cable ties or Velcro. Keep the above
mentioned points in mind and start installing
your Ethernet cables at the earliest.
