Want an even bigger boost to your Ethernet networking setup? You cant go wrong with our Cat6A Ethernet Networking Patch Cables. What gives the Cat6A patch cord a major step above the rest are its performance enhancing capabilities. Cat6A is 10 times faster than Cat6 and 100 times faster than Cat5E!
These cables feature boots that keep the cable from being snagged while being pulled through tight spaces. The bubble boot also allows for easy insertion and disengagement when using patch panels and blade service. Enjoy 10 Gigabit data transmission with these high speed ethernet cables.
Shaxon Category 6A patch cables feature molded boots with a bump design for protecting the clip during usage and stranded wire for repeated flexing and movement without micro-cracking of the copper. Our cables use a short body plug design that minimizes de-twisting of the pairs during the manufacturing process, assuring the highest available performance and employ a flush boot that allows the cables to fit side by side in high density patch fields.
Cat6A Ethernet Cable Features
Category 6A cable, commonly referred to as Augmented Category 6, is a standardized twisted pair cable for Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backward compatible with the Category 6, Category 5/5e, and Category 3 cable standards. The cable standard provides performance of up to 500 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-T, 1000BASE-T, and 10GBASE-T for distances of up to 100 meters.
Slim and Ultra-Slim patch cables will perform best at lengths of under 50 feet.
Network cabling standards are used internationally and are published by ISO/IEC, CENELEC and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). Since 1995, solid-conductor UTP cables for backbone cabling is required to be no thicker than 22 AWG and no thinner than 24 AWG, or 26 AWG for shorter-distance cabling.
POWER OVER ETHERNET (POE)
POE describes any of sever standard or ad-hoc system which pass electric power along with data on twisted pair Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electric power to devices such as wireless network components, IP cameras, and VoIP phones.
The IEEE standards for PoE require category 5 or greater cable or better for high power levels but will allow using category 3 cable if less power is required.
WARNING: Slim and Ultra-Slim patch cables are not rated for Power Over Ethernet.
