High-Speed Cat8 S/FTP Ethernet Cable Up to 4 Times Faster Than Cat6a
This certified Cat8 cable transmits 40 Gbps data, voice and audio/video through high-speed 40G equipment, including network switches, modems, routers, adapters, hubs and patch panels. Not only is its 40 Gbps data transfer speed four times that of Cat6a cable, but this Cat8 cable also supports bandwidth up to 2 GHz (2000 MHz) for carrying information and streaming video with no lag.
Supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) to Cut Down on Power Supplies
Because this Cat8 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. You can also install PoE devices in locations distant from power outlets, such as high on walls, ceilings or poles.
Premium Protection from EMI/RFI Line Noise Helps Your Equipment Perform Better
EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference) line noise is a common cause of performance problems. The 22 AWG S/FTP (shielded foiled twisted pair) cable’s foil shielding blocks 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. Near-end crosstalk (NEXT) levels are practically eliminated, so you don’t have to worry about keeping your cables separated in crowded pathways or spend valuable time on field testing.
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. Integral strain relief provides 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 Cat8 Ethernet cable features a durable white PVC jacket. The color-coding allows easy, fast identification in a crowded rack, patch panel or workstation, preventing the cable from becoming accidentally disconnected.

Typical Applications

  • Connect 40GBase-T networks or digital signage in your office, school or retail business’ high-density server room or data center
  • Deliver power to PoE devices, including network switches, security cameras and wireless access points, mounted in areas that are difficult to reach or have no electrical outlets
