Cat5 vs. Cat5e vs. Cat6 - which one is right for your needs? This is not the easiest question to answer. Each has advantages and disadvantages. It becomes a balancing act between cost and performance. CAT 5 cabling will support 10Base-T and 100Base-T network standards which means it can transmit at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps (Mega-Bits per Second). Cat 5e is backwards compatible to Cat 5 but it is better at reducing crosstalk which helps speed up the network and it has a rating to carry the load of a 1000Base-T network (1 Gigabit network). The next level of cabling is Cat 6. Many people assume that if you install a Cat 6 system that they will instantly achieve a 1 Gigabit system. While the cable system itself will gracefully handle a Gigabit transfer speed it's the components connected that will slow down the network unless they are Gigabit rated. In most cases Cat 5e will be sufficient.

Let's review some terms.
Bandwidth is the amount of data a device or cable can transmit. It is measured in "bits per second".
Crosstalk is a form of data bleeding between cables due to induction. This collision will cause a slow down on the network. Cat 5e has more twists per inch which helps reduce the "crosstalk" thus increasing performance.

What is VoIP? Voice of Internet Protocol. Now, what does that mean? Basically, the phones within your office are connected to your computer network instead of being connected to its own isolated system. This helps reduce the cost of maintaining two networks within your building. Using VoIP also expands the usefulness of your phone system. You can control all of the phones settings from one location so updates and changes can be done swiftly. It also opens up the option of having Wi-Fi phones so even when you are out of the office and are in a Wi-Fi hot spot, you can answer your phones calls as if you were sitting at your desk. There are also advantages of having your voicemails emailed to you as sound clips or on some systems it will convert
the voice mail over to a text message. Now, don't get too excited, there are disadvantages to VoIP. Your phones are dependent on your network so if your network is not designed correctly or it goes down for any reason you will lose your computer network abilities and your phone system. Also, if your network becomes overloaded or has too much crosstalk your phone conversations my become choppy. There is no doubt that VoIP is the future but before you jump on the bandwagon take the time to discuss the options with us.
