Any other useful information

Cat5 cable was designed to run up to distances
of 100 mtrs, this allowed for 90 mtes in the floor known as the permanent link, this is the link between the patch panel in the computer room and the user outlet on the wall. The remaining 10 mtrs is taken up with the patch and fly lead.

A typical Cat5 installation consists of 5 elements, the patch panel, the Cat5 cable, the user outlet and the patch and fly lead.

Each item is tested individually to meet the relieved component standards and when connected together to form a system the overall system must meet the Cat5 performance before a system warranty can be issued by the manufacturers.
