CAT6A cables is an updated version of CAT6 cables. These cables enables a convenient and reliable connection from one network device, such as switch, modem or router, to another or to the infrastructure at large through a patch panel, keystone jack or wall outlet. This cable are also used a lot in small office and home network and entertainment applications. The cables are tested up to 500Mhz / 1000 Mbps (CAT6a standard) and are backwards compatible with CAT6, CAT5e and CAT5 cables. They are produced with latch protection, which prevents the connector do be damaged when you install the cable through an installation with very less space. Furthermore these cables are manufactured with shielding. This protects against both EMI (electromagnetic interference). EMI can cause crosstalk between circuits, resulting in degradation of data, increased errors and slower transmission rates, but by using this shielded cable you will avoid this problem.
