A customer asked me if the following cables support 1GB traffic or not.
On the cable it says:
ACOME M0352A 4P 24AWG UTP 100 OHMS-200MHz PVC **CAT5 EC VERIFIED TO IS 11801** IEC 332-1 75C 37 99

I guess that it is only CAT5, but the EC makes me confused.
I have tried to google on the partnumber but I have not found much info.

If it was 5e it should show: CAT5e. The EC belongs to 'EC verified', a sort of certification.

Definitely CAT5. BTW, I've used CAT5 for 1Gbps on short cable runs before, and it worked fine.
