The network cable cat 6a will be thicker, for two reasons, because CAT 6a data cable has two layers of shielding layer, and the core will be thicker, cable Lan CAT6 has a unique cross skeleton structure. As we all know, the thickness of the core is an important index that affects the transmission rate and is generally proportional. Whether it is a CAT6 or CAT6a cable, the high-quality core is made of oxygen-free copper, which also determines that the network cable can transmit data with low attenuation and high efficiency. We can judge the material of the core by the color of the cross-section of the core.
CAT6a Lan cable core is about 0.58mm, the maximum speed up to 10000mbps, bandwidth: 500MHz, cable diameter about 7.8mm.
CAT6 core is about 0.56mm, the maximum speed is 1000Mbps, the bandwidth is 250MHz, and the cable diameter is about 6.2mm.
Through the above comparison, the CAT6a cable far exceeds CAT6.
