I've seen a bunch of tech specs for cat-5e and cat-6 but I haven't
seen an end of the day summary.

My guess is cat-6 is required for 10Gb ethernet, but cat-5e is fine
for 1Gb ethernet? Is there more to it than that?

Also what is the max recommended lengths for 1Gb ethernet? 10/100?
(yes we have fluorescent lights...)
