CAT6 Cables and CAT6A Cables | 1000FTcables

CAT5 and CAT5e cables are a story of the past. Now the tech world wants more delicate, flexible, applied oriented cables to conduct the electrical impulse. This is where CAT6 cables and CAT6A cables come handy as they are the latest development in the series of CAT cables and are intended to support higher bandwidths of Ethernet at an affordable price.

1000ftcables has always tried to live up to the expectations of its customers by bringing out the best in the business. As a renowned cable sales organization, 1000ft has never let its customers down when it comes to patch and Ethernet cables.cat6-plenum-cable

CAT6 and CAT6a Cables are the latest innovations in the digital wiring industry. Cables of category 6 surpass the previous set of models in theory and in an application. One can surf through the highs and lows of the internet because signal routing is made sounder in design and orientation. CAT 5 and CAT6 cable both plug-in to the very same socket/external jacket. The point of “linking up” computer with the external source is RJ-45, and both CAT5 and CAT6 have this dimension in common.

CAT5 cables can support 10/100 Mbps at 100 MHz bandwidths of Ethernet. CAT5e is the enhanced version where “e” stands for enhanced. So a few of the features are extended and modified for better performance.CAT5e is more proficient in overcoming EMI’s and cross-talks from nearby sources. Radiations emitted by various entities around a computing device can bring the computing operations to a point of stalemate. Delayed and weak signals can cause inefficiency and frustrations. CAT5e is made capable to counter such problems.

CAT6 cables are heavily guarded by protective coating to overcome hazardous radiations (Electromagnetic radiations). They can support the 10GBs of data as well. But primarily they are intended to counter cross-talks (radiations from bulky wiring structures).

CAT6A can support 10GB data at longer distances (328 feet of Ethernet cable).


Cables are an important component of any computing network. Large IT centers and business firms need to handle the menace in the form of radiations (cross talks and EMI’s) for swift and uninterrupted data transmission and signal routing. The design, structure, orientation, and specifications of Ethernet cables must be taken into account for optimum and dignified performance.
