Cat6a Cable Ideal for Your High-Density 10 Gigabit Ethernet Network
This Cat6a 10G Ethernet cable with RJ45 connectors is recommended for connecting network components like printers, computers, copiers, routers, servers, modems, hubs and switches in high-density data centers and network closets. Designed for fast transmission and excellent signal quality, the N261-S20-AQ ensures peak performance throughout your LAN.
Supports Power over Ethernet to Save You Money and Give You More Installation Choices
Because this Cat6a cable supports PoE, it can supply the power to operate compatible 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 devices in areas far away from AC outlets, such as poles or ceilings.
Special Slim Design for Better Airflow and Easier Installation
This Cat6a UTP patch cord is more than 38% smaller in diameter than standard Cat6a cable. This increases airflow in tight spaces, which helps keep your equipment cool and properly functioning. It also cuts down on clutter in crowded racks and patch panels, and makes the cable easier to install around corners and through cable management panels.
Snagless RJ45 Male Connectors Add Extra Protection
The RJ45 connectors’ snagless design protects the locking tabs from being damaged or broken off during installation. The contacts feature 50-micron gold plating to help ensure the most accurate signal transfer possible, improving near-end crosstalk (NEXT) performance to 500 MHz.
Aqua Jacket Helps Avoid Misidentification That Can Cause Costly Downtime
The cable has an aqua PVC jacket, which is easy to identify quickly in a crowded patch panel or switch and helps prevent the cable from becoming accidentally disconnected.
Premium Construction for Superior Performance
Manufactured from 28 AWG copper wire, the four-pair stranded cable is rated for speeds up to 10 Gbps. Integral strain relief gives the unshielded cable extra flexibility, reduces stress and helps the cable move freely without cracking or breaking loose from the connector.
