Warning - Cat 7 Patch Cable

At the moment Cat 7 cable is not able to be wired into an RJ45 connector, and is not recognized in TIA/EIA 568. It can be wired into patch panels and all other structured wiring infrastructure with the final leg using a Cat 5e, Cat 6 or 6A patch cable as required.

Cat. 5e:
Still used as the mainstay for LAN cabling in most cases for Gigabit-Ethernet from 1 GBit/s to 100m or 100 MBit to 350m Max. Freq.: 350MHz.

Cat. 6:
The maximum allowed length of a CAT6 cable is 100 metres when used for 10/100/1000baseT and 37 metres when used for 10GbaseT. This applies for UTP cables only. Shielded (FTP) CAT6 cables are capable of 10GbaseT up to 100m.

Cat. 6A:
This new standard was defined in February 2008 in ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10. It has nearly double the usable frequency up to 500 Mhz at 100m but great care must be exercised when installing into an hostile area as this can greatly reduce frequencies and distance.

Cat. 7:
Rated up to 600 MHz over 100m
