550MHz 1000ft Solid Unshielded Plenum CAT6 Cable 23AWG UTP CMP Bare
Copper Cat6 Cable
Quick Details :
Category 6 cables support Gigabit Ethernet data rates of 1 gigabit
They can accommodate 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections over a limited
distance—164 feet for a single cable. CAT 6 cable contains four
pairs of copper wire and utilizes all the pairs for signaling in
order to obtain its high level of performance.

CAT 6 vs CAT 5e ?
The history of cable design for Ethernet networks resulted in two
separate efforts to improve on the previous generation Category 5
(CAT 5) cable standard. One eventually became CAT 6. The other,
called Category 5 Enhanced (CAT 5e), was standardized earlier. CAT
5e lacks some of the technical improvements that went into CAT 6,
but it supports Gigabit Ethernet installations at a lower cost.
Like CAT 6, CAT 5e utilizes a four-wire pair signaling scheme to
achieve the necessary data rates. In contrast, CAT 5 cables contain
four wire pairs but keep two of the pairs dormant.
Because it became available on the market sooner and offered "good
enough" performance for Gigabit Ethernet at a more affordable price
point, CAT 5e became a popular choice for wired Ethernet
installations. This plus the relatively slow transition of the
industry to 10 Gigabit Ethernet significantly slowed the adoption
of CAT 6.
Limitations of CAT 6
As with all other types of twisted pair EIA/TIA cabling, individual
CAT 6 cable runs are limited to a maximum recommended a length of
328 feet for their nominal connection speeds. As mentioned
previously, CAT 6 cabling supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections
but not at this full distance.
CAT 6 costs more than CAT 5e. Many buyers choose CAT 5e over CAT 6
for this reason, at the risk that they will need to upgrade cables
again in the future for better 10 Gigabit support.
