Cat 6 - Stranded Patch Cable - Bubble Boot - USA

Wiring in your office, home, or commercial setting becomes easier with our CAT6 cables that are available in an assortment of colors and sizes. 


Product Description

Now more than ever, system demands are challenging both new and existing local area networks. Higher speeds and new bidirectional signaling for 100Base-T and Gigabit Ethernet require stringent new performance standards. These new test requirements leave little forgiveness for a system's weak link. Top quality patch cords are now critical to system performance.

DataMax® 6 patch cords are proven to enhance legacy network performance, even for Category 5 systems. The result is faster, more efficient bidirectional signaling.

To assure improved channel performance, every DataMax® 6 patch cord is manufactured using a controlled assembly process. Only select components are used, guaranteeing a new standard for superior cord performance.

  • Assembled using DataMax® 6 stranded cable with 100 ±3 Ohm smoothed impedance.
  • Uses high performance plugs with heavy gold plating and precision wire management features for consistent performance.
  • DataMax® 6 strain relief boots to maintain performance with repeated flexure in use.
  • Guaranteed superior NEXT performance combined with low attenuation and stable impedance. Guaranteed return loss (RL) performance.
  • 100% visual inspection combined with performance lot testing on all cords.

DataMax® 6 patch cords typically improve channel return loss by 4 to 6 decibels.

Patch cord return loss (RL) is proving to be the most important measurement that affects the performance of any channel operating with 100Base-T or any bidirectional protocol.
