Product Details

6ASPAT2MGR Cat6 Cable

This Cat6a cable meets or exceeds all Category 6a cable specifications to ensure reliable 10Gb network connections. The cable is shielded to protect your network against electromagnetic interference (EMI/RFI) and system noise, providing the perfect solution for fast and safe network connections.

Find the length and color you need

This 2-meter gray patch cable is perfect for standard applications such as connecting from a wall jack to your laptop docking station or desktop computer.

For easier network installations, our Cat6a patch cables are available in a wide variety of lengths and colors. This ensures you have the right size of cable available when you need it and it lets you color code your connections for a more organized setup.

Reliable Cat6a 10 Gigabit connections

Each cable is tested for up to 500MHz frequency and is more than suitable for 10GBase-T Ethernet networks.

Constructed with 100% copper and foil-shielded, twisted-pair wiring, this cable was built for quality performance. The cable is designed to keep the data signals traveling through your network free from interference and is perfect in environments that are prone to large amounts of EMI.

The 50-micron gold connectors deliver optimum conductivity and eliminate signal loss due to oxidation or corrosion.

Snagless RJ45 clips help protect your network connections

For trouble-free cable runs, this durable cable features snagless connectors that protect the RJ45 clips during installation, making them less likely to snag or break.

The cable also features molded boots which offer connector strain relief by stopping the RJ45 connector termination points from bending at sharp angles. This reduces the risk of damage to the cable, which could decrease network connectivity and performance.

The 6ASPAT2MGR is backed by’s lifetime warranty for guaranteed reliability.

What is a Cat6a cable used for?
Cat6a ethernet cables are used as data cables, directly linking a router or a modem to the device accessing the ethernet. Cat6a is a great choice for large spaces which may not be able to connect to the ethernet within a short distance.

What is the difference between Cat6 and Cat6a
As a rule of thumb, the higher the Cat cabling type, the better the noise reduction and lower attenuation it can handle and as a result, can handle higher bandwidth. For example, Cat6 can handle higher data transfer rates and distances than Cat5.
The main difference between a Cat6a cable and a Cat6 cable would be the amount of bandwidth frequency they can support. Cat 6a can support double the amount of a Cat 6 around 500 MHz. After installation, Cat6a will also perform at 10 gigabits at 100 m, which is over the allocated length for a Cat6 cable (37 m). If choosing between the two, Cat6a is the more logical choice, especially for applications which may require networks at further distances apart.

What about safety?
As a standard, every Cat6a cable is listed as at least LSZH (Low Smoke Zero Halogen). Meaning these cables will emit a very little amount of smoke and no halogen if exposed to a high heat source. Although you should always check the kind of shielded version you need, especially in a high heat environment
