1000base-t vs 1000base-tx

Hi,

One end of the link supports 1000BASE-T and the other end supports 1000BASE-TX. I realized that with BASE-T you must use CAT 5 and BASE-TX  you must use CAT6. Will this work if I use CAT6 cable to link them together?

Yes, it will work with CAT6.  For 1000BASE-T you need CAT5 or better (CAT5e, CAT6, CAT7).

Re: 1000base-t vs 1000base-tx

The maximum allowed length of a Cat-6 cable is 100 meters (330 ft) when used for 10/100/1000baseT

Hi,


1000BASE-T will run on Category 5 and Category 5e cabling at distances to 100 meters and the maximum allowed length of a Cat-6 cable is 100 meters (330 ft) when used for 10/100/1000baseT.

Hope to Help !!
