CAT 6A & CAT 7 CABLING

What is Cat6a

In 2008, the new Cat6a and corresponding ClassEA standards were ratified. A Cat6a cabling system is a higher specification than Cat6 and designed to meet all of the requirements of the 10GBaseT Ethernet over the full 100 metre, 4 connector channel. Cat6a is backwards compatible with Cat6 and Cat5e.

The CAT7 cable standard has been created to allow 10-gigabit Ethernet over 100 meters of copper cabling. The cable contains four twisted copper wire pairs, just like the earlier standards. CAT7 can be terminated either with RJ-45 compatible GG45 electrical connectors which incorporate the RJ-45 standard or with TERA connectors. When combined with GG-45 connectors, CAT7 cable is rated for transmission frequencies of up to 600 MHz. When combined with TERA connectors, CAT7 cable is rated for transmission frequencies above 600 MHz.
