As Dante protocols become more widespread, understanding the cable and connectivity needed to support it is crucial to achieve expected performance levels.

Most Dante systems require only a 1G Ethernet network (and, thus, Category 5e cable for distances of up to 100 m). While this is true, there are a few benefits to going beyond those requirements in a Dante deployment.

Based on industry conversations and research, we created a list of five factors to consider before choosing Category 5e cabling for Dante project:

  1.       Headroom
  2.       Power
  3.       Futureproofing
  4.       Cable robustness
  5.       Connectivity
