CAT6 has now become the minimum standard for new cabling installations. As well as being able to easily support 1 Gbps network speeds, CAT6 can also support higher data rates of 10Gbps. However, 10Gbps is only supported over shorter distances of 37-55 metres.
Maximum Bandwidth: 250MHz
Maximum Distance: 100 metres
Maximum Data Rate: 10Gbps (limited distance)
Use: new buildings
