This FTP (foiled twisted pair) cable is perfect for any indoor networking application in a noisy environment. This rating of cable contains a shielding designed to resist crosstalk and electromagnetic interference that comes with networking in close proximity to other cable sources.
The next step up from standard Cat5E cable, Category 6 (Cat6) is a "twisted pair" network cable used for carrying data signals at speeds of up to 550MHz of Bandwidth. This cable is preferred for more advanced networking installations where a higher bandwidth than normal is required.
Our Cat6 Solid Bulk Cable comes wrapped in a sturdy PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Jacket, built to withstand high levels of stress, pulling, and pushing.
This type of cable comes complete with a Foil Shielding, to protect the signal strength of the cable and ensure that there is no signal loss due to nearby electrical equipment, or cross-talk from additional cables in close proximity.
For this particular cable, the gauge is 23 AWG, which is a diameter of about 0.0226 Inches, or 0.573mm. 23AWG is the Industry Standard for any typical network cable installation. American Wire Guage (AWG) is the standardized gauging system for measuring wire sizes.
Designed for more straight-forward, simple installation, this particular style of Solid cable is perfect for most installations where cable runs do not require several bends and twists in the line.
