It in fact does not meet Category 5e specifications. It is actually a "fake" Cat5e cable. The conductors inside of this cable are actually aluminum, coated by a small cladding of copper. Aluminum has been banned in both household wiring, and phone cabling for good reasons. Aluminum has not been used in household wiring in the United States since the mid 1960's, when the NEC condemned it, because it is a downright fire hazard when terminated to plugs or other quick disconnect mechanisms because it degrades over time when exposed to open air. Also it has been banned in phone applications since the early 2000's because it cannot carry the frequency required by ADSL.
As far as Ethernet is concerned, CCA cable cannot carry the frequency required to reach gigabit bandwidth. It also degrades over time causing complete failures on punchdown blocks and unsealed RJ-45 jacks. I could not get this cable to pass a network certification test during an install. Things get real fun when trying to use this cable for Power over Ethernet. Testing this for those applications, in some cases the cable can actually smoke up at the terminations, if the maximum power output is applied as to the 802.3af standard. I was afraid I was going to burn up a perfectly good POE switch and equipment just by testing that theory!
If you install this as riser cable in any structure that has to abide by the NEC, congratulations, that structure will now fail its next electrical inspection. If it burns down and an insurance company finds that you've been using aluminum cabling for PoE, it's grounds for them not to pay the claim.
Amazon and all other retailers should not be selling CCA or CCS Ethernet cable. It is a downright safety violation when used in POE applications. Pay the extra money and get legitimate CMR cabling.
CCA Cable DOES NOT meet the specifications for Category5E, despite the manufacturer's deceptive claims. The standard lays out certain specifications for resistance, capacitance, crosstalk, etc. Aluminum cable is INCAPABLE of meeting these specifications. ANY CCA cable that is labeled as "Cat5", "Cat5e", "Cat6", etc is a fraud.
DO NOT use this cable for PoE (Power over Ethernet) applications. The internal resistance of the aluminum is much higher than copper, and will result in the cable overheating when power is applied to it. It is a FIRE HAZARD.
Aluminum cable has a far lower tensile strength than copper, and is more susceptible to conductor breakage while pulling. Open circuits after installation are not uncommon.
Aluminum begins to oxidize instantly upon exposure to the air. Cutting the cable exposes the internal aluminum core, as does crimping on the ends or punching down to a jack. Oxidized connections fail quickly, and also cause high resistance points (again, fire hazards) in PoE applications.
This cable is NOT rated for in-wall use, and it is NOT UL listed.
Like I said, there's a reason this is cheap - it's cheap because it's garbage. As a network technician, I find that CCA is the cause of an ever-increasing amount of network issues. Spend a few more bucks and buy CMR rated, UL Listed, 100% copper cable from a name brand like Southwire, Carol, BlackBox, etc.
