Direct Burial CAT5e is used for applications that require the cable to be outdoors or directly in ground with or without the use of a conduit. Direct Burial CAT5e is made with a polyethylene (PE) jacket and gel infused to protect the cable from water, and extreme temperatures. Four color-striped pairs make it easy to install and reduces alien crosstalk. This cable can be measured and cut to exact distances, then terminated to a connector, jack, or patch panel. This CAT5e cable is certified and fluke tested for gigabit Ethernet and 350Mhz.
