With Today's standards, move everyone is familure with Wi-Fi. Ethernet is the traditional technology for connecting wired local area networks (LANs), enabling devices to communicate with each other via a protocol -- a set of rules or common network language.
Ethernet standard IEEE 802.3u ushered in 100BASE-T-- also known as Fast Ethernet -- with data transmission speeds of up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps). The term BASE-T indicates the use of twisted-pair cabling.
Gigabit Ethernet boasts speeds of 1,000 Mbps -- 1 gigabit or 1 billion bits per second -- 10-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), up to 10 Gbps, and so on. Network engineers use 100BASE-T largely to connect end-user computers, printers and other devices; to manage servers and storage; and to achieve higher speeds for network backbone segments. Over time, the typical speed of each connection tends to increase.
Ethernet cables connect network devices to the appropriate routers or modems, with different cables working with different standards and speeds. The Category 5 (CAT5) cable supports traditional and 100BASE-T Ethernet, for example, while Category 5e (CAT5e) can handle Gigabit Ethernet and Category 6 (CAT6) works with 10 GbE.
Network cable installs are priced per drop location. onsite installation of Ethernet CAT5, CAT5e, CAT 6, cabling includes labor & hardware for each drop (including termination)
