Ferari Style and the Bubble Style Network Cable Boots 1

ferari Style and the Bubble Style Network Cable Boots

First, we are spelling Ferari correct. We do not want to cause problems with the car manufacturer of a similar name. We respect their product and wish to not cause conflict with them.

The Ferari style boot is a little more slim and easier to gain access to the clip making it easier for removing the RJ45 end from the network connection whether is a tight spot on a computer or on a high density network switch. This is an easier boot (molded cable) to use when connecting to a switch or computer. The conventional boot has extra plastic around the connector and causes the cables to get too cramped when lots of cables are connected next to each other on a switch. This is why the Ferari boot is easier when connecting to a network card on a server, workstation, or any network device.

The Bubble style boot is the most common boot available for molded Ethernet cables. Bubble style boots are a little more slim than the conventional boot. The bubble part is smaller that other boots making it easier to access the clip on the RJ45 end.

In the end, it comes down to personal preference when choosing between the Ferari and Bubble style boots. Have you ever had a hard time trying to take a Ethernet cable with a boot out of a network card? They are easy to plug in, but taking them out is a pain. Usually you had to try and pry the boot down to get the cable out or use a screwdriver to push the boot down enough to unclip the connector. Both Bubble boot and Ferari boot are good choices compared to the conventional boot.
