[Q] I need to get some crossover and patch cables made with a different color boot than the cable. Can this be
[A] Absolutely. CAT 5 Cable Company will custom produce your
cables the way YOU want them. Often times, a client will request
something special, like red patch cables with yellow boots,
or black crossover cables with orange boots, etc. Sometimes
they wish to "visually" code these cables so they
can pick them out at a distance and know what they are for.
this is especially useful for emergency use, or temporary runs
that the customer will need to be able to pick out quickly without
digging through a nest of cable.
This is becoming an increasingly common practice among installers, especially given the complexity of most networks that are being built. Many situations have developed where networks are operating encompassing a mixture of older token-ring networks supporting proprietary systems, as well as the modern Ethernet system supporting normal PC and server operations.
you need your cables made with a custom boot selection, you
can indicate it on the order form online, or you can call the
order in toll free at 866-835-2285. We will be happy to accommodate
