Our kenable Cat6a S/FTP outdoor cable is designed with FULL COPPER 23AWG twisted pairs and each pair of cores foil shielded as well as a foil braid to reduce interference and cross talk.

The weatherproof UV Resistant PE sheath allows the cable to be outdoors without eroding over time. Suitable for burying underground mounting to buildings or installing indoors. The 8mm copper cable is more rigid than previous revisions of network cable but easy to install.

Our range of Cat6a cables run much faster Cat 6 or Cat5 cables but are backwardly compatible. They have double shielding to eliminate cross talk and interference. Referred to as S/STP under the sheath lies a foil Braid and then underneath this each twisted pair is also inside a foil shield. Perfect for the latest in 4K TVs Gaming Consoles Macbooks PC s Laptops Notebooks CCTV Access Points Range Extenders and any other device that uses the RJ45 connection.

So what s the difference between Cat 5e Cat 6 and Cat 6a cables?
There are two main factors to look at when comparing network cables. The first is the speed (bandwidth) and the other the frequency (MHz).

The Speed determines how much data (bandwidth) can be sent through the cable. Cat 6a cables have a maximum speed/bandwidth of 10 000 Mbit/s but Cat 6 carries a lower 1000Mbit/s and the cat 5e range of cables carry up to 1000Mbit/s.

The Frequency or MHz indicates how often the signal can pass through the cable. Cat 6a cables have higher frequency at 500Mhz but Cat 6 only has 250Mhz and Cat5e 100Mhz. Overall a Cat 6a cable will allow more bandwidth at a faster rate than the previous cables.

Cat5e Has a speed to 1000 Mbit/s 100mhz
Cat6 Has a speed to 1000 Mbit/s 250mhz
Cat6a Has a speed to 10000 Mbit/s 500mhz
