What is the max distance for cat5e cables in 1000Mbps (1 Gigabit) Full Duplex mode?
Quoting from Wikipedia:
So it's 100 meters (328 feet).
The network segment is not just the segment from one device to another, but must take account of the actual end-to-end delivery, for example device A - switch - device B. from A to B the 100m should be the cable length between device A to switch, plus the cable length between switch to device B.
Yes, this is wrong. I don't know what the maximum distance is but it has to do with the attenuation and interference that are inherent with a longer cable. The maximum distance is NOT affected by using a switch as the switch is in essence a "repeater". Once the signal reaches the switch, it is forwarded or "switched" to the line connected to whichever interface the outgoing signal will be sent on. Hence you could double the maximum length by using a switch in the middle. I came here trying to find the answer for myself, and felt compelled to point out the misinformation.
correct. if you put a switch in the midle you can have 100+100metres=200metres from end to end.
actually,you can give a little more maybe 110m+110m=220metes totaly
using the fat wire advantage of cat6cable compared to cat5e,(due to less ohm resistance)
but you will have a little collision although its full dublex,and
that because the distanse 100m is selected not by luck..
, but it is the time
in microseconds it needs the 1st
also you can use up to 4 switches back to back to extend the total lengh more .thank you tsiridim
