Category CAT6a: defined at link frequencies up to 500 MHz
Category CAT6a performs at improved specifications, in particular in the area of alien crosstalk as compared to CAT6 UTP (unshielded twisted pair), which exhibited high alien noise in high frequencies.
When used for 10/100/1G/10GBASE-T, the maximum allowed length of a CAT6a cable is 100 meters or 328 feet.
This consists of 90 meters (300 ft.) of solid "horizontal" cabling between the patch panel and the wall jack, plus 10 meters (33 ft.) of stranded patch cable between each jack and the attached device.
Since stranded cable has higher attenuation than solid cable, exceeding 10 meters of patch cabling will reduce the permissible length of horizontal cable.
When used with Key Digital HDBaseT Switchers or/and extenders the maximum allowed length is 121 meters or 400 feet.
Works great in hostile alien crosstalk environment, such as when many cables are bundled together.
However, because the effects of alien crosstalk environments on cables are difficult to determine prior to installation,
it is highly recommended that all CAT6a cables used for 10GBASE-T be electrically tested once installed. With its improved specifications,
CAT6a does not have this limitation and can run 10GBASE-T at 100 meters (330 ft.) without electronic testing
