CAT5 verses CAT6
Posted on 2013-10-25
We are in a building that has CAT5 runs and CAT5e at the patch panels and at the desktops
We now have servers that are running NIC 1GB 331FLR
Smart Switches wtih 1GB ports
All Wireless accesspoints 2.4Ghz Up to 300Mbps
All printers have 10/100Base-TX Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, IPv6, BiDi, Hi-Speed USB 2.0
All workstations are 64 bit 1GB NICs
our internet is 10mbps
We generate CAD files and raster images which is larger than your average file most of the time and all data is stored on mapped drives.
Would I benifit replacing the CAT5 runs with new CAT6 runs?
Would my users notice the differance?
Can you explain why?
I'm just gathering ROI info.
