Bulk Cat6a Blue Ethernet Cable, 10 gig Solid, UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair), 500Mhz, 23 AWG, Spool, 1000 foot
Our blue bulk 1000 foot solid Cat6a Ethernet cable comes in a convenient spool and is ideal for the person looking to make longer permanent network runs during installation/expansion of network infrastructure.
Cat6a was developed to achieve maximum distance of 100 meters for full 10-Gigabit network speeds. This robust spec will afford you the extra headroom across your network that Cat6 can not. The 500 Mhz performance is double that of Category 6 and five times the bandwidth capacity of Category 5e. The extra performance is ideal for Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications where data loss is audibly and visually seen and heard. The latest draft declares a new measurement for Power-Sum Alien Crosstalk to ensure neighboring pairs do not cause disturbance to the other cables. The cable center isolator maintains strict pair separation optimizing NEXT performance. Our Cat6a bulk cable tested for compliance with all EIA/TIA-568-C Category 6a specifications.
This particular cable is a blue UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) solid cable. Cat6a cable includes a spline and ribbing to help ensure separation between the pairs which limits cross talk. The individual conductors are 23 AWG (American wire gauge) solid pure copper. Pure copper conductors provide the best signal possible.
This bulk CAT6a cable is very thick and stiff. This makes it difficult to use any crimp connectors with it. This cable should be punched down into a CAT6a keystone jack on one end and patch panel on the other end. However, if you need to make patch cables with this, the only connectors that will work with this cable is our 31D0-600HD.
