For Cim Future Is Cat6 A 1540x800 64f7700988d1f

The future of enterprise cabling has Cat 6A written all over it

Sept. 5, 2023
Any new cable installation must support not only the applications initially running, but also support applications that may spring up over the next 10 to 15 years

Cabling is one of the longest-lived assets in a network, and, while initial deployments of multigigabit technologies may be able to take advantage of installed cabling plants, anyone planning for the long term with a new deployment should consider Category 6A cabling to grow into the future without limiting application performance. 

This paper explores the history and likely future of data communications and power over Ethernet technologies to explain:

  • what makes Category 6A fundamentally different from Categories 5e and 6
  • why it matters today
