Cat6a Cable Ideal for Connecting Equipment in Your 10G Ethernet Network
This 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 Bacteria
The connectors and PVC jacket are constructed using an antibacterial material that is effective in inhibiting the growth of Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus (staph). This added protection makes this cable an ideal solution for medical facilities, schools, businnts/kitchens and anywhere else that wants extra protection against bacteria.
Snagless RJ45 Male Connectors Keep Tabs Intact During Installation
The 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 Performance
Manufactured from 24 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 3-micron gold plating to help ensure the most accurate signal transfer possible.
White Jacket Helps Avoid Misidentification That Can Cause Costly Downtime
The 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.

Questions & Answers
Molded and snagless cables both feature identical RJ-45 termination styles and offer equivalent performance.
- Molded cables bond the RJ-45 connector and cable with a molded boot, leaving the connector's lock exposed. They are best suited for environments with few connection/reconnection cycles, such as areas that are difficult to reach.
- Snagless cables have a protective flap on the boot to safeguard the RJ-45 connector's lock, making them ideal for settings where the plug is frequently unplugged.
You should not need to choose between molded and snagless. Many cables have both features.
