Category 6 high speed cables are a notch above Cat 5 enhanced cables. So, if you want a superior and faster network, then Cat6 is the way to go. With the age of the Gigabit Networks in full throttle, Cat 6 network cables are sure to give you the upper hand in lasting longer. Networx™, as always, strives to deliver you the highest performance achievable with its 550 MHz, Cat 6 patch cable. Read on to know why.
Networx™ Cat 6 cables are manufactured by following the strictest regulations that have been set-up by the TIA/EIA. Unlike some manufacturers out there, Networx™ does not cut corners and puts everything into the manufacturing process to give you the best quality. The Networx™ CAT 6 Patch Cable
is ideal for use in high performance Gigabit Ethernet networks like 1000 Base-T.
At the same time, it remains fully compatible with your older CAT 5e patch cable or your existing 10/100 fast Ethernet network. The Networx™ CAT 6 patch cable is constructed from a high quality 550 MHz bulk cable. This cable consists of four unshielded twisted pairs. 24 AWG stranded conductors. The booted Networx™ CAT 6 patch cable flaunts stranded conductors and a highly durable and rich PVC jacket. The Networx™ Cat 6 cable also reduces NEXT interference and boosts performance by implementing short body, staggered, Cat 6 RJ45
modular connectors. To top it all off, Networx™ Cat 6 contacts are plated with 50 micro inch of gold plating. This in turn provides superior connectivity. While the CAT6 standard only requires cable rating up to 250 MHz, all Networx™ patch cables are tested up to 550 MHz.
The 8 Position 8 Contact (8P8C) (often called RJ45) plugs and sockets are most regularly used as an ethernet connector. 8P8C connectors are typically used to terminate twisted pair cable.
A patch cable or patch cord (sometimes patchcable or patchcord) is an electrical or optical cable, used to connect ("patch-in") one electronic or optical device to another for signal routing. Devices of different types (ie: a switch connected to a computer, or switch to router) are connected with patch cords. Patch cords are usually produced in many different colours so as to be easily distinguishable, and are relatively short, perhaps no longer than two metres. Types of patch cords include microphone cables, headphone extension cables, XLR connector, RCA connector and 1/4" TRS connector cables (as well as modular ethernet cables), and thicker, hose-like cords (snake cable) used to carry video or amplified signals. However, patch cords typically only refer to those short ones used with patch panels.
