What are two similarities between UTP Cat 5e and Cat 6a cabling? (Choose two.)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
UTP Cat 5e and Cat 6a are both types of copper Ethernet cabling that are commonly used in networking. Here are the two similarities between them:
Both support speeds of at least 1 Gigabit (Answer B) Both Cat 5e and Cat 6a support Gigabit Ethernet (1 Gbps) and are backwards compatible with slower Ethernet speeds such as 10/100 Mbps. The difference between them is in their maximum bandwidth, which affects their ability to support higher speeds over longer distances.
Both support runs of up to 100 meters (Answer D) Both Cat 5e and Cat 6a can support Ethernet runs of up to 100 meters (328 feet) when used for horizontal cabling in structured cabling systems. This is the maximum distance allowed by the Ethernet standard for twisted-pair copper cabling.
