Extreme 6+ CAT6 patch cords use compliant stranded wire as specified by the TIA guidelines to ensure adequate flex life and long term channel integrity. Quality construction to maintain quality of signal transmission at the cross-connect, which is critical to the performance of the entire cabling system. CAT6 system components meet or exceed the requirements for channel/component-level performance per TIA/EIA Category 6. Delivers reliable, error-free transmission in an active, real-time network environment. Designed to be used in typical Category 6 channel applications. Supports high-speed megabit applications including Gigabit Ethernet. Double the bandwidth of CAT5e. Interchangeable with CAT5e components. Includes 2 RJ-45 male end connectors with gold plated contacts. Slim line boot to accommodate use in high density switches, routers, and other electronics. Snag-less reinforced boot design prevents plug and cable damage. UL (Underwriter's Laboratories) listed.
