In contrary to the American TIA/EIA 568 standard, the international ISO/IEC 11801 standard and the European EN 50173 standard differentiate categories and classes. These standards have to be complied with for (copper) network cabling.

The category specifies the methods and values by which individual components must be tested. The categories defined are: Cat.5, Cat.6, Cat.6A, Cat.7, etc). The term class is used if products of the same or different categories are connected. The element of the lowest category determines the class and the class defines the transmission speed.
