  • Hi Jason,

    EIA/TIA and IEEE 802 standards for 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet allow for maximum CAT5 cable lengths of 100 m for any network segment.

    I hope this answer helps and thanks for using the TI E2E Forums.

    Hello Jason,

    TI does not manufacture or install network equipment so I am unable to recommend a network installer. You might want to find listings for network installers in your area and consult a 3rd party ratings service and the BBB for ratings.

    Thanks for using the TI E2E Forums.
