Cat6 and Cat6A ethernet cables remain the industry standard for home and office internet connections. Cables.com stocks indoor and outdoor Category6 cables for every job. FInd the Cat6 network patch cables you need for your data center here. 

Fiber optic internet may currently offer some of the fastest connection speeds available, but ethernet connections remain prized for their stability, affordability, and ease of installation. Currently the industry standard for home and office internet connections, Cat6 cables offer up to twice the speed of Category 5e cables and are gigabit rated, which makes them suitable for POE (Power Over Ethernet) devices; and Cat6A network patch cables operate at frequencies up to 500 megahertz—twice the rate of their immediate predecessor. 

Whether you're seeking flat Category 6 cables for installations in tight spaces or booted Cat6A cables for additional security, Cables.com has what you need.

Category6 Cables with Snagless Boots

Have you ever taken a good look at an ethernet or network patch cable? If you have, you might have noticed a bit of molded plastic shielding the space where the connector is joined to the length of the cable itself. It may look something like this:

Violet Cat6 Ethernet Cable with Snagless Boot - Shop Cables.com.

To put it simply, a booted ethernet cable is meant to fit snugly in its receptacle. This reduces the possibility of unintended disconnections and damage that might occur to the connector or its port in an environment where there might be movement around the cord, like maybe beneath an office desk. Cables.com offers a variety of ethernet cables with snagless boots.

Cables.com stocks a variety of cables with the snagless boot feature, including our Cat6 network patch cables rated for up to 550 Mhz. But what about our bootless ethernet cables? When would a patch network cable with no boot be the better option for you?

Bootless Cat6 Cables

Bootless Network Cables (also known as assembly type) ensure a snug fit in all receptacles for all applications including high density network switches, where they are recommended. 

Bootless Blue Cat6 550MHz Network Patch Cable - shop cables.com.

Like our cables with the snagless boot, our bootless blue Cat6 550 Mhz Network patch cable features a sturdy PVC jacket and quality RJ45 plugs on either end. The key difference is that a network patch cord without a bootallows for maximized speed and performance in data centers and home networks. This is just one reason why they're the best cables for high-density environments like cramped patch panels. When space is tight and you don't anticipate a lot of interference with the cables in your data center, a bootless ethernet cable is the right way to go.
