Ethernet Cable Classifications

Aug. 23, 2019

The development of new data communications systems in the aerospace and defense industry is driving the need for more bandwidth. Ethernet standards have evolved to meet the data transfer rate and frequency requirements for these modern systems. Ethernet cables are used in a wide variety of aircraft, ground vehicle and mobile communications shelter applications, including ethernet backbones, avionics networks, in-flight connectivity, navigation systems and digital video. These mission critical systems are often installed in rugged and harsh environments that make signal integrity and system performance a challenge.

To address these performance requirements, PIC Wire & Cable offers a portfolio of CAT5e, CAT6a and CAT7 ethernet cables that transmit up to 10G of data at 600MHz with low loss, lightweight and flexible characteristics for applications that require robust, space saving and easily routable cables.
