Cat6a Plenum Cable - Higher Data Transfer Rates and Bandwidth Capacity
If you’re installing network cabling in an office or large building, it’s important to use a Cat6a plenum cable that meets the industry standards and specifications of Cat6a cable. For example, you want to be sure that your plenum cable can handle gigabit Ethernet speeds and high bandwidth capacity transmissions. Our Cat6a Plenum cable comes in red, black, and blue colors, with connectors that can be used with both regular patch panels and pre-made panel systems. This is one of our most popular products because of its versatility. What Is Plenum-Rated? In general, plenum cables are constructed from materials such as flame retardant cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) or pure fluorinated ethylene polymer (PFA), which prevent potentially hazardous fumes and heat from forming. As a result, they’re safer to use than PVC cables. Like another category of cabling, plenum cable is characterized by its jacket type: riser-rated cabling usually uses PVC jackets, while plenum-rated cabling usually uses either XLPE or PFA jackets. The term plenum cable was coined because it is intended for installation in a building's plenum—the space above its drop ceilings where HVAC systems are installed. Advantages of Using CAT6A Cable CAT6A cable, although not very much in use has a lot of advantages over its predecessors. One of its biggest benefits is that it will support up to 10 Gbps speeds making it future-proof. It's truly one of a kind when it comes to data transfer rates. The CAT 6 cabling system is actually based on 3 different cables: CAT 6, CAT 6A, and CAT 7. Each of these is used for specific applications depending on their capabilities. While all three share similar specifications, they differ slightly in terms of maximum transmission speed. CAT 6 supports transmission speeds up to 250 MHz (500 Mbit/s), while CAT 6A can handle transmission rates as high as 500 MHz (1000 Mbit/s). For reference, Ethernet runs at 100 Mbit/s or 1 Gbit/s (1 billion bits per second). If you want your network to be able to reach these higher speeds, then you'll need Cat6A Cables 1000ft. These cables are also backward compatible with previous versions of ethernet so you won't have any trouble connecting them if you're upgrading from an older network setup. A Peek Inside The Indoor/Outdoor Ratios Although they make a variety of cables, one of their most popular lines is its Cat6A bulk cable. There are two versions of bulk Cat6A cable—one that’s designed for indoor use only and another for outdoor use only. Even though both cables have an overall high level of performance, each meets specific specifications for those environments. The 1000ft Cat6A plenum cable meets some enhanced specifications for indoor use only. How Does It Work? 1000ft Cat6A cable is specifically engineered to run at a lower voltage drop than standard Category 6 cable. This can reduce power loss in your installation by up to 1/3 of that experienced with conventional Cat 6 cable. It can also run at higher frequencies, which makes it capable of supporting 10GBASE-T applications for gigabit networking. Its extra shielding will protect against external interference or unwanted radiation; whether you're using it for point-to-point data transfer or just to connect two patch panels together in your server room, you'll benefit from its excellent performance under pressure. We manufacture bulk Cat6A plenum cables in observance of prevalent market norms and industry standards. Why Choose Us Over Our Competitors? Well, first off, our Cat6a plenum cable meets industry standards and surpasses some of them. Second, our cable is manufactured in bulk, which means it’s a great value that comes with a low price. Finally, if you’re looking for great customer service at an affordable price, you can expect to receive both from us! We pride ourselves on outstanding customer service to ensure your satisfaction with every purchase. Conclusion A plenum is an air-handling space, whether an individual duct or a shared duct system, that serves one or more rooms. A plenum may also serve as a return air plenum. This makes it necessary to choose your bulk cable supplier wisely to make sure you receive only premium-grade cables.
