Cat6 Computer Network Cable 1000ft Outdoor UV Bulk Ethernet Cable is used for high speed voice/data applications and used to connect computers, switches, routers, and other devices with network jacks. Cat6 cable supports high speeds requirements by the 10G-BaseT (10Gig) ethernet standard. Cat 6 network cable is completely backwards compatible with all category 5 cables and equipment. This is computer cable that can be used for either voice or data transmission in an outdoor setting.
Cat6 network cabling is used as the cabling infrastructure for 10 BASE-T (Ethernet), 100 BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), 1000 BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet, or GbE) and 10 GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet, or 10 GbE) networks. The Cat 6 standard provides performance of up to 500 MHz for the newer Cat6 standard and can be used up to a maximum length of 100 meters (55 meters for 10GBASE-T networks). Cat6 is backwards compatible with the Cat3, Cat5 and Cat5e cable standards.
