Does the Cate5 support the Gigabit Ethernet

The Cate5 support the Gigabit Ethernet. Usually, the Cate5 cable is the unshielded twisted pair (UTP). It contains four pairs of twisted pair. The Fast Ethernet (100Base-T) and the 10Base-T only use two pairs of these UTP.


The Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T) uses all four pairs of the UTP.


From the 10Mbps or 100Mbps Ethernet to the Gigabit Ethernet is often considered as an expensive upgrade from the copper cable to the fiber optical cable.

But it doesn't need to be that way. Currently, the copper cable mainly supports the Fast Ethernet in the enterprise. At the same time, these existing cate5 also provide the reliable support for the Gigabit Ethernet.


The related products (such as twinax cable) offered by Sopto are also playing an important role in their application fields.

The popular serial over Ethernet adapters

The popular serial over Ethernet adapters . The Ethernet adapter is also known as the card. Currently, the multiple communication devices only provide the serial interface without the Ethernet interface in the market. So, it is difficult for the equipment to access the Ethernet network.   And using the Ethernet adapter let us access the serial devices into the Ethernet work successfully. It makes the information management monitor the devices. However, due to the variety kinds of serial port equipment, the different communication protocols and the different standards, parameters is different even the same type of device.   Therefore the system integration can be very inconvenient.
