How much does it cost to install CAT6 cabling at your home or office?

Cat6 or Category-6 cables is a trending cable now a days, most likely Cat6 Plenum 1000ft bulk cable everywhere being used in commercially, small and big offices, we know in Texas. This cable has four twisted color-coded pairs with 1 spline and rip cord to reduce noise and crosstalk when signals are transmitting with communication online. It was developed to carry more faster data then before. Even with a long run installation. Cat6 Plenum 1000ft cable can manage 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) and up to 10 Gbps at short distance. Cat6 plenum 1000ft cable is standard for installation of Ethernet networking cables in commercial and also residential buildings are set in publications by the (TIA/EIA) Telecommunications Industry Association / Electronic Industries Alliance. Consumers and producers get guidance by these standards but don’t constitute actual legal requirements.

Of course, Networking cables are not only for commercial buildings, while many consumers optimize their systems for wireless technologies, anyone with a serious computer system, gaming system or home automation system will want to optimize for the more consistent and reliable means of data transmitting, which definitely involves the use of Ethernet Cables. Wireless technology is faster and consider reliable for everywhere, it connects smart devices and you can use it within the signal strengths area. But if you talk about security level, it is a big risk to connect your device wireless. In the market you can get many devices that work to hack and get security credentials easily. Even within a range of 30 feet, a hacker can hack your vehicle remote control lock. That’s why, we recommend cables installation in your working places.

So, while your requirement may very limited or depending on the type of technology that you are utilizing, roughly 200 feet of cable install per line of average home user, with ten (10) lines installed for a total of 2,000 feet, it means two 1000FT of a cable, like 2 boxes of a cable.

Pros and cons

Cat6 plenum 1000ft utp cable consist of for pairs of solid conductors that are encased together in a plenum rated jacket, pairs are divided with a spline. Cat6 1000ft cable transmit data with little interference or crosstalk between the wires. It allowing you to send and receive data at faster speed with reliable consistency.

1000ft Cat6 plenum cable currently is the most trending and common networking cable being installed in commercial and residential settings. While there both cables older, less expensive versions and newer in the market. At this time installers recommend Cat6 plenum cable and users or consumers agree on Cat6 plenum cable that generally sufficient for most people’s needs.

Pros:

The biggest and most common pro consider that Cat6 plenum cable can transmit 10gigabits of data per second over short distance. Most consumers install about 200 feet of Cat6 plenum cable per line, and majority of that distance can transfer the data at much higher speed.

Cat6 plenum 1000ft cable has less crosstalk and interference than older cables, and also it has the option to include shielding within the jacket. Cat6 plenum cable in now standard but not an option for older models.

Cat6 plenum cable have 2 or more twists per centimeter. It is an improvement over 1.5-2 twists per centimeter of older cables. It allows for two-way communication, as well as faster and more reliable speed.

Cat6 plenum solid UTP 1000ft cable is also backward compatible. It means you can change or upgrade your all networking or cabling without needing to upgrade the rest of your system.

Cons:

The first cons that comes to mind when you thing to purchase Cat6 plenum is higher cost over cat5e plenum. Some Cat5e manufacturer have begun to include nylon shielding in Cat5e to make it enhance use. So, for households without a lot of heavy use, the higher cost of Cat6 plenum mat not be worth it.

The breakdown of speed at long distance further than 164 feet is the other main drawback of Cat6, but 95% of requirement are less then 150 feet. Cat6-A and CAT-7 cables may provide more consistency in the data transfer speed even at greater distance. It depends on your particular set up, these distance limitations could be a significant factor.

Types of cabling:

You will also see the cost column in below areas, but before that you can check some companies running promotion on cables and other equipments. Like on nChristmas and new year and on labour days many companies start their sale promotions to grab the customer's intention and they also entertain their customers.

While some of the older types of cabling have become obsolete, there are several and different types to choose from in addition to CAT-6. Each has its own pros and cons that may make it a better fit for your needs. A professional cabling installer can guide you better to choose the cable for your requirement.
