Patch cables are also known as patch cords as it has connectors on both ends that are used to connect an end device to a power source. Similar to Ethernet cables, there are fiber patch cable and Ethernet patch cable, such as LC fiber patch cable or Cat6 RJ45 patch cable. Patch cables are often used for short distances in offices and wiring closets. Ethernet patch cable can link a computer to a network hub, router or Ethernet switch, which is useful for constructing home computer networks.
Patch cables can be short as three inches or longer than a hundred feet. Cat 5, Cat 5E, and Cat 6 Ethernet cables are common examples, used to connect computers together in a network as well as network servers. Patch cables enhance the performance of connected devices via high-speed data transfers. In addition, these cables have several benefits such as lower latency, low noise interference, easy installation, and reliability.
At present, data transfer and networking has become an essential part of all commercial activities in industries, business, broadcast, and others. These commercial activities generate large amounts of data daily, which needs to be transferred between devices with appropriate security. Thus, patch cables are used for networking and non-networking connections in industries. Patch cables are the most popular and reliable for residential, institutional, healthcare, IT & network security, and enterprise users as they are easy to install, secure, and exhibit various benefits over other connecting techniques.
