Augmented Category 6 (Category 6A) standards were initially developed to address the extended frequency bandwidth and alien crosstalk headroom required to support 10GBASE-T over 100 metres of cabling containing up to four connectors. Category 6A is recommended as the minimum grade of cabling infrastructure where network speeds will go beyond 1000BASE-T to 10GBaseT.
Category 6A/class EA cabling provides the maximum return-on-investment when the calculations are performed using a 10-year lifecycle.
Combining 10 Gb/s performance with the security, noise immunity and pathway space maximisation of a screened cabling system, Siemon’s 10G 6A F/FTP end-to-end solution represents the cutting edge of augmented Category 6 cabling. A part of Siemon’s 10G ip™ family, 10G 6A F/FTP meets or exceeds all pending standard performance requirements for 10GBASE-T, including alien crosstalk parameters. Specifically designed to handle tomorrow’s most advanced and performance critical applications, 10G 6A F/FTP performs as well in secure or high EMI environments as it does in standard office spaces, by virtue of its screened construction.
