Cat5e 25 Pair Indoor/Outdoor Bulk Cable

Note: This is not a stock item. Usually ships within 3 days, but may take up to 2 weeks for delivery.

With its CM fire rating and UV resistant black jacket, this 25-pair, 24 gauge, Category 5e tight twisted copper conductor cable can be installed in both premises and outside plant (OSP) environments. The CAT 5e tight twist lays provide superior crosstalk performance, supporting digital subscriber line (xDSL) and IPTV broadband technologies in both the OSP pedestal and customer premises. In addition, the cable jacket is fungus resistant which is important in OSP pedestal environments. The cable meets or exceeds ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 for CAT 5e backbone cables and is able to support up to 1000BASE-T Ethernet technologies.
