My choice for CAT6 cable - is it okay?
A few months ago, I posted about should I get CAT5e or CAT6? Thanks everyone for their feedback and discussions that followed.
Finally, as the construction process is happening next week, here is the CAT6 cable they are going to be installing:
HONEYWELL CATLINK 6 PLUS P/N 5092
This is in a private house (brick) and my 3 runs are going to be: 60 feet, 40 feet and 30 feet.
For some reason this is called CAT6 Plus, but I am not sure it is 250Mhz or 500Mhz, meaning -- is it CAT6 or CAT6a?
Thanks again for all your comments.
It does not claim to be Cat 6a (augmented) needed to 10G so one should assume is is just high quality Cat 6. Vendors do all sorts of testing over and beyond what the specs call for - for marketing advantage.
Given this is a residence and you are not going to be filling cable trays Even regular Cat 6 ought to work for 10G.
