Category 6a standard was defined in February 2008 in TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10. Cat6a can currently support 10 Gbit/s applications up to a maximum distance of 100 meters (330 ft). Improved specifications, particularly in the area of Alien Cross-talk (AXT) as compared to category 6 which exhibited high alien noise in high frequencies.
Our category 6a cables contain four twisted copper wire pairs and are made from 24AWG cable with a PVC jacket and snagless molded boot. The snagless design protects the locking tabs on the RJ45 connectors from being damaged or snapped off during installation. Our shielded category 6a patch cables include a foil shielding and a drain wire that protects signals from external noise.
Furthermore, these category 6a patch cable has built-in pair separator, which prevents interference from cross talk. Each category 6a cable meets TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 standards.
Cat6a cables are backward compatible with Cat5e and Cat6 cables.Specifications
