STP - Super Cat 6 Component-Rated
A shorter run for 10Gigabit Ethernet
If investing in Cat 6A seems too extensive at the moment, whether it's due to equipment or cabling considerations, there is an alternative worth considering: the HCI Super Cat 6 Component-Rated Solution. In fact, by opting for a Cat 6 Component-Rated solution, it is possible to achieve 10GBASE-T with shorter cable runs of less than 55 meters. This length is typically adequate for most scenarios in smaller-scale sites, making it a practical choice. Additionally, the HCI Super Cat 6 Component-Rated Solution offers the advantage of being more flexible and space-efficient, making it a smart alternative for situations where the stiffness of Cat 6A cable bundles may pose challenges with existing conduit sizes or equipment room space. Just be sure to adhere to TSB-155's instructions and verify the performance of installed cabling.
It's worth noting that if longer cable runs or future scalability is a consideration, upgrading to Cat 6A or higher-rated cabling is still recommended, as they are specifically designed to support 10Gbps speeds over longer distances.
Super Cat 6 Component-Rated is more than just an ordinary Cat 6 solution
HCI Super Cat 6 Component-Rated Shielded solution sets itself apart from competitors in the cabling industry. Each HCI Super Cat 6 connectivity has obtained individual certification from the esteemed third-party laboratory ETL, guaranteeing outstanding quality and compliance. ETL conducts quarterly inspections to validate this certification, highlighting a commitment to excellence and distinguishing HCI Super Cat 6 Component-Rated Shielded connectivity among suppliers of copper cabling products.
Make sure you're future-proof
In light of past experiences, it is crucial to constantly take your network infrastructure's future-proofing into account. When considering the integration of 802.3bz 5GBASE-T for increased data rates in wireless acess points (APs), it is crucial to acknowledge that this technology demands a higher bandwidth than what is typically offered by standard Cat 6 cabling.
Each connectivity provided by HCI Super Cat 6 Component-Rated Shielded Solution is meticulously engineered and tested to support extended frequencies of up to 350MHz, far exceeding the necessary bandwidth of 312MHz required by the 5GBASE-T technology.
By proactively considering and adjusting for increased bandwidth needs, you can guarantee that your network is ready to tackle the ever-changing technologies and increasing demands of wireless connectivity.
