Category 6A ethernet cables are currently the industry standard for data network installations. Why should you consider buying Cat6A ethernet cables?

What is Cat6A Ethernet Cable?

Ethernet cables have advanced rapidly in speed and bandwidth since the release of Cat 1, an unshielded twisted-pair cable introduced in 1985 with a data rate of 1 Mbps. Though there are now faster, more advanced cables used for data transfer, Cat6A ethernet cables remain the industry standard for data network installations. Cat6A cables combine affordability with connection quality, and when you're purchasing from Cables.com, you can be sure you're getting the best cable for your money. Rated for up to 500 Mhz, Cat6A cables can offer up to twice the speed of Category 6 cables and are gigabit rated, which makes them suitable for POE (Power Over Ethernet) devices - no additional cables needed! Out Datacomm Cat6A cables offer a reliable and secure connection between your devices and your home or office network.
