    Spectacular Quality AND ValueIf you are looking for top quality CAT6A CMR indoor cable at a reasonable price, then you just found it.I install Wi-Fi networks and camera systems and this particular cable is meant for an inside Wi-Fi AP/Switch/Router/Server installation. When I made my choice, I went by the following criteria:• The cable must be solid copper. Many of the runs I install are up to 300 feet. Stranded copper should not be used past 75 feet.• The cable must be CAT6A since the network I will be installing will, in the future, require 10G Ethernet over copper out to the maximum possible distance limitation of 328 feet.• The cable must be properly documented so I can select the proper connector to use with it. I will not trust cable this is not fully documented up front.• The cable must meet all EIA/TIA specifications and if used inside walls (not plenum air spaces) then it must further be CMR rated so it does not promote the spread of a fire.Fortunately, trueCABLE (unlike many others) has properly published the specifications on the cable and I selected the Platinum Tools ezEX-44 unshielded connector. Since this connector is specific to Platinum Tools, you are also required to use the ezEX0 crimp tool and interchangeable die system. The two most critical specifications needed are the OD or outside diameter of the cable jacket and the OD of the conductor insulation, which basically means the copper conductor diameter PLUS accounting for the insulation around the conductor. It is NOT enough that a connector says “CAT6A compatible”, nor is it enough that a particular connector says it will work with “23 AWG” conductors. Each cable manufacturer will have different ODs for the cable and conductors. In this case, the cable OD is 7.30mm and the OD of the conductor insulation is 1.02mm. Very few connectors on the market will work with such a thick cable OD of 7.30mm, so careful research was necessary. When I selected the connector, I needed to know what the connector would accept and as it turns out, Platinum Tools also properly documents their connectors. The ezEX-44 accepts cable ODs up to 7.36MM and conductor OD range of 1.0 – 1.12mm. Perfect! This connector has the added advantage that it is pull-through in design and does not use load bars, plus the conductors stagger 4 high and 4 low to minimize near and far end cross talk, which is critical for high bandwidth applications. See my pictures for how this looks.Taking the cable off the spool, this stuff is stout. The jacket is thick and the interior of the cable has a “spline” which separates the pairs to minimize cross talk. The spline further helps with keeping the cable from kinking while running it. There is a rip cord inside the cable, but I did not make use of that. You should use a cable stripper when terminating cable to RJ45 connectors. For such a thick cable, you are well advised to get a heavy-duty adjustable stripper such as the “Big Red” or BR-1 type. I took pictures of the inside of the cable.Overall, I am impressed with the quality of this cable! I wrote a long review here with pictures because this product really deserves it.Oh, and this was all at a lower price than Vertical Cable’s similar offering. I have used Vertical Cable and while they are comparable in quality, their cable costs more.

    Performs as expected.Easy to use with both a pass thru RJ-45 jacks & punch down terminal blocks. Be warned though, it doesn’t like to be ran in bundles into a wall plate in a 2×4 wall, it is stiff. Single cable runs should be no problem.

    not for beginnersI teach computer networking in a program that requires students to make their own ethernet cables and make their own runs every semester. we still tend to use Cat5e just because it’s cost effective and easy to work with for beginners but we do occasionally get Cat6 in and use it as it becomes available. I figured Cat6a would be no different from 6 so I decided to somewhat futureproof my house by buying this product for a home project I’m working in. this Cat6A stuff is a whole other animal if you are used to working with Cat5e or Cat6. the cable is THICK, like RG6 Coax cable thick. I was worried my cat 6 connectors I had on hand wouldn’t work so I decided to terminate the roll. I had to manually reduce tension on my cable strippers because they just don’t open up enough for this cable. the cable coloring isn’t the worst I’ve seen but it’s not the clearest either as far as separating your whites/solids and which white is for which pair. the wires themselves are pretty on-par with cat6 which is to say much heavier gauge than your typical Cat5e. I could barely get the wires into my 3-piece cat6 RJ45 connector and I had to pinch, smash, and otherwise cram the cable jacket into the RJ45(even after I cut out the center shielding). I’m not sure if this is just an issue with this particular product or if all Cat6a cable is made to this standard, but just so you’re warned you’ll need at least a decent level of practice to work with it. I can usually do a 3-piece termination on Cat5e in about a minute to a minute and a half, this took about 3 or 4 minutes so it’s going to take a bit more time than you’re used to if you tend to work with the older, cheaper standards.

    nice cable but a pain to work withGreat cable if you want it for running through walls, etc. and using for punch downs. If you plan on making shorter cables with RJ connections, look at others. The white center cable separator is a nightmare to get your wires on the right side of to terminate them. The cable sheath is super thick and wont fit well into the RJ45 connectors and crimpers wont work well with it. ONLY USE FOR WALL INSTALLATIONS, or you will be really dissapointed!

    Excellent productsWhat can I say it’s riser cable. Very well made easy to work with a bit stiff because it’s 6A.but that is ok. Much higher quality than other manufacturers I have tried on the same product

    Quality cable… shipped well protected“Cutting the cable” meant adding devices. So many that I decided to network everything. I made the mistake of buying flat CAT6 for my cable runs. Our cable guy was at our house for a modem issue and noticed that I was using flats. His comment: “I think they’re junk.” I found out that he was right. My old mishmash of CAT5e performed better.I decided to cut my losses and rewire a second time using this CAT6A 23GA copper unshielded riser cable. I invested in the tools, RJ45 ends, keystone wall ends, etc. This cable was a good choice… nice abrasion resistance and it cut and stripped easily. I ran it through ceilings, up raceways, through the attic and garage… it performed well. It is a stiff product due to its 6A diameter but it came off the spool well. I chose to remove the coil memory first for each cable run… running out 60 feet or so and uncoiling the cable by hand. My last long run, I used a cordless drill to remove the coil with my son helping on the other end.Photo #2 shows the disastrous flat CAT6 (white), what I feel is true CAT6 (black), and this product in CAT6A (gray).

    GreatI like it

    Quality CAT6A.Good CAT6A cable. Well protected by a thick sheath. Wired the main floor and basement.Copper was more resistant to breakage compared to other cable I’ve ran.Mind the RJ45 connectors you plan to crimp, the thickness of the cable made it harder to fit into. Keystones were mainly used in my project and it was perfect for them.Only using 1gb on my equipment and I’ve confirmed those speeds are reached without problem. I wanted to future proof so I used this cable as it can go to 10gb.I intend to setup some POE AP’s in the next couple weeks with it and don’t anticipate this cable giving problems.

    If you use there ends, the completed cable will work fine.I liked the fact I only had one end problem out of 25 cables. I have never had results anywhere near this good with any other cable. I did use True Cable ends. No complaints.

  10. Sharyn GIbson

    High quality cableThis is some very heavy, high quality cable. Something you should be aware of is the outer sheath is thicker than typical cat 6a. It can stand a lot of abuse but this makes the cable about 25% larger than what you’ll typically find. This means you’ll need a larger ID cable comb and regular RJ45 connectors won’t fit. For my suggestion I’m using patch panels and keystone jacks so this is a non issue.
