*Note on Category – 6 Cables: CAT 6 is a cable standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocols that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards. Cat-6 features more stringent specifications for cross-talk and system noise. The cable is terminated in either the T568A configuration or the T568B configuration. It doesn’t make any difference which is used, as they are both straight through (pin to pin). Mixed cable types should not be connected in serial, as the impedance per pair differs and would cause signal loss or severe degradation. When connecting two Ethernet units of the same type (PC to PC, or hub to hub, for example) a cross over cable should be used, though some modern hardware (routers, switches, etc.) will detect and utilize either type of cable automatically.
Telecommunications Industry Association or TIA is a trade association in the America representing overt 600 telecommunications companies) TIA is working to complete a new specification that will define bolstered performance standards for unshielded twisted pair cable systems. Draft specification ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 specifies cable systems, called “Augmented Category 6” or more frequently as “Category 6a”, that operate at frequencies up to 500 MHz and will provide up to 10 Gbit/s bandwidth. The new specification has limits on alien cross-talk in cabling systems.
Augmented Category 6 specifies cable operating at minimum frequency of 500 MHz, for both shielded and unshielded. It can support future 10 Gb/s applications up to the maximum distance of 100 meters on a 4-connector (wire) channel.
