An Ethernet Crossover cable is used to connect two PCs directly together, without using a hub or switch in between. This is an extension cable with a male and a female end. Monoprice Cat5e fixed length network cables are the perfect combination of value and performance. Each cable is made of 24AWG stranded pure copper conductor pairs with 50Ám gold plated contacts (short body). Most budget cables skimp with only 10Ám.
Each cable features color matched, snagless, strain relief boots. Monoprice Cat5e and Cat6 cables are made of 100% bare copper wire, as opposed to copper clad aluminum (CCA) wire, and are therefore fully compliant with UL Code 444 and National Electrical Code TIA-568-C.2 fire and safety standards, which require pure bare copper wire in Cat5e and Cat6 communications cables.
