CATx Cable Selector

Compare models and choose the right option for you.

Cabling is one of the most important components of your network. Choosing the right cabling can be a daunting proposition as we move forward to 10-/40-/100-Gbps, even 1 TB networks. You have to consider many factors including cost, mobility, convergence, and even applications that haven't been developed yet. Our CATx Cable Selector Guide will help you select the right CATx patch or bulk cable for your application.
