What is the difference between CAT6A Ethernet cable and CAT6 Ethernet cable?

2020-11-27

The difference between CAT6A Ethernet Cable and CAT6 Ethernet cables is as follows:
1. Different transmission frequencies
The transmission speed of CAT6A network cables exceeds that of CAT6 network cables.The transmission frequency of the Cat6 Patch Cable is 250MHZ and supports gigabit speed, while the transmission frequency of the CAT6A Patch Cable has been upgraded to reach 550MHZ and supports 10,000mhz.This is the difference between the two transmission frequencies.
2. Different skin marks
The outer covering of the CAT6 cable and the Cat6A Ethernet Cable is different. Generally speaking, the outer covering of the cable will have the manufacturer's information, cable logo and scale on it.The identification of the CAT6A cable is cat6, and the identification of the CAT6A Ethernet Cable is CAT6A.
In addition, CAT6A cables will be thicker because CAT6A has two shielding layers and a thicker core, and CAT6 has a unique cross skeleton structure.The thickness of the wire core is an important index affecting the transmission rate, which is generally proportional.
3. Different core conductors
The conductor material of CAT6 of unshielded network wires is 0.545±0.02mm, while that of other types and supersix types is 0.57±0.02mm. This is also the difference between the two, but because this gap is too small, the naked eye is five points to distinguish, so generally do not judge from this aspect.
4. Different prices
CAT6A Ethernet cable is more expensive than CAT6 Ethernet CAT6, generally speaking, 100 meters of the CAT6 cable is less than half of the CAT6A cable.
