An Ethernet crossover cable is a type of Ethernet cable used to connect computing devices together directly. It is most often used to connect two devices of the same type: e.g. two computers (via network interface controller) or two switches to each other. By contrast, patch cables or straight through cables are used to connect devices of different types, such as a computer to a network switch or Ethernet hub.
Our cross over patch cable is offered in gray color cable with green color boots in order to distinguish from straight wired patch cable.
Shielded patch cable is designed to protect critical data from EMI (ElectroMagnetic interference), which is known to degrade, disrupt, or even interrupt connectivity. Electromechanical devices, such as electric motors, transformers, magnets, and fluorescent lighting ballast cause this type of interference. Shielded patch cables are ideal wherever stable data transfer is critical in this type of environment, and are especially useful in healthcare and manufacturing facilities.
