Pro2 1m CAT6 Patch Cable Lead Cord Network Ethernet Internet for PC MAC Router
Category 6 cable, commonly referred to as Cat-6, is a cable standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocols that are backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards.
Compared with Cat-5 and Cat-5e, Cat-6 features more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise. The cable standard provides performance of up to 250 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), 1000BASE-T / 1000BASE-TX (Gigabit Ethernet) and 10GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet).
To maintain transmission characteristics and network integrity, it's essential to use the correct type of patch-cord to match the installation. A network port will perform only at the level of the LOWEST-rated component in the chain.
- UTP CAT6 Patch Lead - Each cord has eight multi-strand conductors in 4 twisted-pair T568A color coded configuration.
- Quality cable material - Fitted with 50µ Category-6 compliant 2-row (staggered pins) plug and fully-molded strain-relief boot.
- Molded strain relief & Low profile flush moulded boots - With molded strain relief RJ45 male-to-male connectors this cable will be strong, and robust.
- Packaged in heat-sealed hang-sell bags.

Category 6 Cable Standard:
- Category 6 is a standard that aims to support transmission at frequencies up to 250 MHz over 100Ω twisted pair.
- Supports current Category 6 applications such as 100BaseTX,100BaseVG, ATM, Gigabit Ethernet and all fast Ethernet protocols.
How to distinguish a Cat 6 plug from a Cat-5 or Cat-5E plug:
To distinguish a Cat-6 plug from a Cat-5 or a Cat-5E plug, just simply look at the way the cable's wires have been terminated at the end of the plug:
- A Cat-5 or a Cat-5E plug will ALWAYS have all eight wires in a single row
- The majority of Cat-6 plugs will have wires in two rows with four wires per row
- Some Cat-6 plugs will have wires in two rows with 6 wires in the top row and 2 wires in the bottom row
