High-Speed Cat6a STP Patch Cable Ideal for Your 10GBase-T Ethernet Network
Designed for fast transmission and excellent signal quality, this 10-foot Cat6a cable ensures peak performance throughout your local area network (LAN). It transmits 10 Gbps data, voice and video through high-speed 10G equipment, including network switches, modems, routers, adapters, hubs and patch panels. It reduces impedance and structural return loss compared to standard 100 MHz wire.
Supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) to Cut Down on Power Supplies
Because this Cat6a shielded cable supports PoE, it can supply the power to operate compatible PoE devices, such as security cameras, VoIP telephones, point-of-sale kiosks and access control devices. This saves you the expense and effort of purchasing, connecting and installing individual power supplies for each device.
Premium Protection from EMI/RFI Line Noise Helps Your Equipment Perform Better
Various electromagnetic and radio sources found in virtually every home and business can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. Known as EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference), this line noise is a common cause of performance problems. The N262-010-AQ shields against disruptive line noise that can disturb your electronics and inflict hardware damage or data loss. This EMI/RFI filtering also helps your connected components perform better and last longer.
Snagless RJ45 Male Connectors Add Extra Protection During Installation
The RJ45 connectors’ snagless design protects the locking tabs from being damaged or broken off during installation. The ends are shielded to minimize near-end crosstalk (NEXT) levels. Integral strain relief gives the N262-010-AQ extra flexibility, reduces stress, and helps the cable move freely without cracking or breaking loose from the connector.
Color-Coded to Avoid Misidentification That Can Cause Costly Downtime
This Cat6a STP patch cable features an aqua PVC jacket. The color-coding allows easy, fast identification in a crowded rack or workstation, preventing technicians from accidentally disconnecting the wrong cable.

Typical Applications

  • Connect 10GBase-T networks or digital signage in a high-density data center
  • Deliver power to PoE devices mounted in areas that are difficult to reach or have no electrical outlets
  • Replace an old or missing RJ45 cable
  • Provide universal connectivity for LAN network components, such as switches, servers, modems, routers, adapters, VoIP phones, security cameras and point-of-sale kiosks
