Cat6a S/FTP Stranded Network Cable, Gray, Spool, 1000ft
CableWholesale's gray bulk 1000 foot stranded Cat6a S/FTP (Shielded Foil Twisted Pair) Ethernet cable comes in an easy to use spool. Our product, 13X6-521MH, is ideal for the person looking to make a variety of patch cables over a larger job, or for one looking to be prepared to handle unexpected situations within their network infrastructure. Cat6a cable is used for high-speed local networking, data transfer, phone, and other communication applications. Category 6a was designed and ratified specifically for 10-Gigabit Ethernet applications. They perform at high-speed data transfer rates, and work with ATM and 10-gigabit rated products (10GBASE-T or IEEE 802.3an-2006). This is a gray shielded cable with 26AWG (American Wire Gauge) stranded copper conductors which offer more flexibility and a tighter bend radius making it ideal for patch cables. Pure copper conductors provide the best signal possible and are required by the EIA/TIA-568-C standards, which our Cat6a Ethernet cable exceeds.
What does S/FTP mean?
This particular cable carries the designation S/FTP. The S in S/FTP indicates that there is a braided shield just inside the outer jacket. The succeeding letters indicate that each twisted pair (TP) has its own aluminum mylar foil (F) wrapping. Altogether this cable has 2 levels of shielding. The cable as a whole has a braided shield AND each conductor pair has a foil shield.
