Outdoor external ethernet cable for aerial use connecting an outbuilding. Is there such a thing or a recommended cable type for that?

In ground is preferable but it will take longer or may be impossible due to tree roots and other challenging obstacles.

There are plenty of options for UV rated outdoor cable. I personally always recommend gel filled for outdoor use.

 

If you want built in catenary wire your options are limited and you'll pay a massive premium (far more than running your own wire).

If I'm running my own caternary wire, what and where to get something suitable and how to link it to the ethernet cable?

This is still my preferred option but something like a wireless link option is catching up on that : )

Any usual source of cables such as an electrical wholesaler will have gel filled cable. I'm not sure what you mean by "linking it to the Ethernet cable" as this is Ethernet cable. You've obviously going to need a crimping tool to terminate the cable.

 

A wireless link will always be an inferior solution to Ethernet, simply because it's half duplex. Presumably you're going to need to run outdoor cable and a crimping tool anyway to mount outdoor radios anyway for a P2P link unless you have LoS from windows.

Just lay out your cat wire and zip tie the cable to it. I'm not sure I've ever seen a cat5e/cat6 with a bonded cat wire.
