Cat6 1000ft Box:

When putting up a copper cabling system for the office, residential projects or buildings one constant that seems to be always taken into consideration is the cable which every project actually requires. Cat6 cable is commonly known as cat6 is standardized twisted pair of cable. It is networking cabling and composes of four twisted pairs which can be used for commercial and non-commercial purposes, home and all business networks.

Category 6 is an Ethernet cable standard explained by the Electronic Industrial Association (EIA) and Telecommunications industry (TIA) which is the sixth generation of twisted pair cabling backward compatible with cat5 and cat5e standards. It holds four pairs of copper wire uses all the pairs for signaling in order to obtain its high level of performance. It is designed for the requirements of fast broadband applications and is the most popular cabling for new installs hold today.

Cat6 cables have the strictest flame ratings with have a special coating on its cable. Basically, the plenum is jacketed with a fire retardant jacket of either a low flame fluorinated ethylene polymer (FEP) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC)and its less toxic. They are used for preventing flame and restrict smoke propagation and to minimize the amount of smoke released during the fire. These cables are specially designed for and placed in plenum spaces.

For now- plenum cables the riser cables can be used because these cables are used in non-plenum areas and run between the floors.  With lower cost, they are not fire resistance as compared to the plenum and designed for general use only. These are usually the common Ethernet patch cables and created to connect networking devices. Most significantly, a plenum cable can be replaced and restored by riser cable but a riser cable cannot be replaced and restored the plenum cables.

Plenum cables and riser cables are described as CMR and CMP. “C” and “M” are used to refer that the cable has complied with NEC (National Electrical Code).”R” refers to riser and “P” describes plenum.

Cat6 cable plenum, PVC and cat6 riser cable are consisted of 1000ft having a pull box. This pull box is designed to facilitate the pulling in of cables without creating a mess. When used for 10/100/1000BASE-T, the maximum length of wire is up to 100 meters (328FT). This includes 90 meters (295 ft.) of firm horizontal cabling between the patch panel and the wall jack furthermore the 16 feet of standard patch panel between the attached devices. If standard patch cables, jacks and all the connectors are not used with cat6 cables the overall performance would not be up to the mark and may not fulfill the cat6 performance specifications. Plenum can be used in commercial, residential areas and hospitals since these areas are crowded that safety must come first more than anything.

As for as cabling there are plenty of choices and hard to list them all but choosing the right cable is choosing the success of any project.
