Cat5e STP Bulk Cable – 350Mhz Bare Copper, 24AWG – 1000 Feet, Blue
What’s the best way to save money on almost anything you can buy? Purchasing in bulk, of course. The concept is the same whether you’re stocking up on toilet paper, bread or Ethernet cable; it’s why warehouse store are one of the major economic success stories of the last 25 years.
So when it’s time to wire a house or business, or to create a large number of Ethernet cables for your large network, there’s no sense in buying separate cables for each run or connection. What you need is a huge roll of highquality Ethernet cable. You can use it for a number of different purposes and you’ll be saving a ton of money.
You’ve probably guessed that we have a Cmple product that’s perfect for the job – our bulk Cat5e shielded twisted pair cable. This isn’t the cheap stuff. It’s 100% 24AWG bare copper (with full insulation, of course), rather than cheaper copperclad aluminum (CCA); that makes this cabling is fully compliant with UL and national electrical safety codes for communications cables. It’s Category 5e rated, meaning it’s able to handle the demands of today’s highspeed gigabit Ethernet applications at lightning connection and data transfer speeds up to 350MHz (and of course, it can easily handle slower, older networks as well). Cat5e cable is designed to minimize radio and electrical interference as well as crosstalk, and because this cabling is made of shielded twisted pairs, it’s also ideal for maintaining the signal quality of streamed data like video transmissions.
The Cmple Cat5e bulk cable is also CM rated, meaning it’s fireresistant and has passed the UL 1581 vertical tray flame test. It’s completely safe to run inside walls for your home or company Ethernet long throws, as long as you don’t use it in risers or plenums. 1000 feet is usually more than enough to take care of a complete installation in a house or small business, so there should be plenty of cable left over for use in making all of the smaller patch cords or connectors you need for the network as well.
The 1000 feet is easier to handle than you might think, because it comes neatly coiled in a convenient carton, marked for easy measurements and simple to cut to exact lengths.
Checking the specifications of the Cmple Cat5e shielded twisted pair 1000 foot bulk cable:
- Wire: bare copper, 24 AWG
- Suitable for megabit Ethernet, fast Ethernet or Ethernet applications
- Meets or exceeds Cat5e specifications
- 4 pairs of shielded, twisted wires
- CM rated, safe for inwall use
- Compliant with National Electrical Code TIA568C2 and UL Code 444 fire standards
- Maximum speed/data transfer: 350Mhz

This is the same type of highquality, inwall rated Cat5e cabling that expensive, professional installers use to set up wired Ethernet networks. But you can get it from Cmple and easily install it yourself for a fraction of the price. Why would you do it any other way?
