Primus Cable Comments on Ethernet Cable Business Requirements

July 17, 2013

As businesses change, so do the products they use. In this press release Primus Cable comments on the evolution of ethernet cables and other important networking cables.

(PRWEB) July 17, 2013

Most people associate the term Ethernet cable with home-based networks. However, many businesses typically use Ethernet cables for their own local area networks (LANs). Even with the wireless revolution in full swing, Ethernet cables are still used extensively. For instance, a company may offer its customers free Wi-Fi service (think Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, McDonald’s, etc.). These cables are utilized to connect wireless routers with existing cable and phone lines.

With ever-increasing demands for speed and performance, businesses must ensure their network equipment is able to handle different devices and connections.

"As Ethernet cables have evolved over the years, they’ve been an integral part of device compatibility – essentially, making sure that a given piece of network equipment can talk to the rest of the system. This has grown the market for Ethernet equipment to over $16 billion in annual sales (as of 2010). Businesses have contributed a significant amount to that staggering figure." Said a Primus Cable Representative

Because a company requires more robust performance characteristics from Ethernet cables than households, businesses have been the catalyst for the Ethernet cable evolution.

"To put it simply, as companies implement new Ethernet cable configurations with their networks, residential households follow." Said a Primus Cable Representative

In the mid-1990s, Ethernet cables typically accommodated speeds of either 10 or 100 Mbits per second. By the late-90s, network performance increased to the tune of 1000 Mbits per second, and Ethernet cables had to follow suit.

"At this time, Category 5e cables started to phase out standard Category 5 cable. Fast forward to the present day…if your business network can’t handle 10,000 Mbits per second, you’re simply not in the game. Category 6a Ethernet Cables is required for this new standard of speed." Said a Primus Cable Representative

As noted above, Ethernet cables followed the network speed frontiers. At one time, Category 5 cables were adequate for any business network. In less than a decade, network capacity increased to a factor of 10.

"Today, many businesses employ Category 6 and 6a Ethernet cables to keep equipment running – and their customers happy." Commented Primus Cable

A business can have different network requirements; some just want to maintain a LAN, while others – whose business actually IS the network business (Cisco, Google, Microsoft, etc.), demand the very best cables and equipment in every corner of their particular network. Whatever your Ethernet cable requirements are, Primus Cable offers a great selection at affordable prices.
