Commscope Cat 6 and Cat 6A cabling and connectors

Cat 6a cable

Category 6 systems consisting of concatenated cables, cords and connectors enable modern LANs with robust support for network speeds of 1 Gbps. Category 6A systems enable 10X that speed — up to 10 Gbps.

Cat 6A offers cost-effective and simple provisioning to prepare today’s buildings for current and future applications. With 10 gigabit applications starting to emerge, the time is right to consider provisioning the building with the right copper cabling infrastructure based on Cat 6A twisted pair connectivity.

Multistage compensation facilitated the realisation of Cat 6 cabling, and a whole family of related patents on compensation methods, jack design and lead frames arose from this initial innovation.

CommScope has continued to improve performance further to Cat 6A levels, while simultaneously achieving Cat 6 performance levels efficiently and cost-effectively. The combination of these advancements in the connector area, coupled with complementary developments in cables, has enabled CommScope to build its position in the structured cabling market.

Cat 6 and Cat 6A are the most commonly used cabling solutions in the market today for new enterprise installations. The upcoming revision of ISO/IEC 11801-2 for Offices will specify a minimum of Cat 6 (Class E) for the horizontal cabling, with Cat 6A (Class EA) recommended for support of applications in excess of 1 Gbps.
