CAT5 cables are used for Ethernet and phone networks. CAT6 network cables are a newer design, and they have better signal-resistance capabilities and can carry higher bandwidth speeds than CAT5. CAT7 cables will be introduced in the market soon; they are built to carry higher signals than CAT6.
Fiber optic cabling is made up of glass or plastic fibers that transmit digital data. It has been used for a long time, and it’s used to communicate telephone signals within buildings as well as between buildings over longer distances. There are two types of fiber optic cabling: single-mode and multi-mode. Single-mode is used for long distances, like between buildings or cities, while multi-mode is used within buildings or short distances.
