CE Pro 100 Names Top Networking Cable Brands

SnapAV’s Wirepath brand surges past Liberty AV to claim the top spot in networking cable, followed by AudioQuest, Honeywell and Structured Cabling Products.

Wirepath (SnapAV) is the No. 1 brand in the 2017 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis for networking cable.

CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.

In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.

SnapAV’s Wirepath brand surges past Liberty AV to claim the top spot. The remaining top four companies made modest gains, but not quite like those made in the Home Networks.

It’s worth noting that leading networking companies’ dominance in that category doesn’t extend to the use of Ethernet cable/category cables.
