Cat6a Cable Ideal for Connecting Equipment in Your 10G Ethernet NetworkThis Cat6a Ethernet cable (M/M) with RJ45 connectors transmits 10 Gbps data, voice and video through high-speed 10G equipment, including network switches, modems, servers, routers, adapters, hubs and patch panels, in high-density data centers. Designed for fast transmission and excellent signal quality, this Cat6a cable ensures peak performance throughout your local area network (LAN). Provides Extra Protection Against Certain BacteriaThe connectors and PVC jacket are constructed using an antibacterial material that is 99.9% effective in inhibiting Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus (staph). This added protection makes this cable an ideal solution for medical facilities, schools, businesses, restaurants/kitchens and anywhere else that needs extra protection against bacteria. Supports Power over Ethernet to Save You Money and Give You More Installation ChoicesBecause this Cat6a shielded cable supports PoE+ Type 2, it can supply the power to operate compatible PoE and PoE+ devices, such as security cameras, VoIP telephones, point-of-sale kiosks and access control devices. This saves you the expense and effort of purchasing, connecting and installing individual power supplies for each device. It also helps you install PoE and PoE+ devices in areas far away from AC outlets, such as poles or ceilings. Filtering EMI/RFI Line Noise Helps Your Equipment Perform BetterThis Cat6a S/FTP (shielded with foiled twisted pair) cable blocks disruptive EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference) line noise that can disturb your electronics and inflict hardware damage or data loss. Foil tape on each individual twisted pair helps reduce crosstalk between adjacent pairs and other cables in the installation, which also helps your connected components perform better and last longer. Snagless RJ45 Male Connectors Keep Tabs Intact During InstallationThe RJ45 connectors' snagless design protects the locking tabs from being damaged or broken off during installation. Integral strain relief gives the cable extra flexibility, reduces stress and helps the cable move freely without cracking or breaking loose from the connector. Premium Construction for Superior PerformanceManufactured from 26 AWG copper wire, the four-pair stranded cable is rated for speeds up to 10 Gbps. The RJ45 connectors improve near-end crosstalk (NEXT) performance to 500 MHz and feature gold plating to help ensure the most accurate signal transfer possible. White Jacket Helps Avoid Misidentification That Can Cause Costly DowntimeThe cable has a white PVC jacket, which is easy to identify quickly in a crowded patch panel or switch and helps prevent the cable from becoming accidentally disconnected.
