Cat6 550 MHz Bulk Ethernet LAN Network Cable - 1000 Feet, Orange
Highest-quality and inexpensive: that’s a great combination for Ethernet cabling. And it describes what you get with SG Installations Cat6 bulk Ethernet LAN network cable, because this product has high-end specs for about half the price of most 1000 foot Cat6 cable that you’ll find anywhere else.
How is that possible? By using copper-clad aluminum for the four twisted pairs inside the cable, instead of the much more expensive pure copper found in higher-priced products. This bulk cabling provides the same bandwidth and speed found in any other Cat6 cable and has the same sturdy PVC jacketing; the only trade-off for the low price is that it’s not optimal for runs where the cabling has to be bent or maneuvered to fit into tight spots, since aluminum is fairly brittle and can break easily. As long as cable flexibility isn’t a major issue for your installation, this bulk cabling should do everything you need it to do without breaking the bank.
So, what exactly does it do? It provides the most bandwidth of any modern-era Ethernet cabling, 550 MHz, while easily handling the data transfer speeds necessary for gigabit networks. You don’t lose data integrity either; because it’s Category 6 cable, it has been constructed to provide maximum protection against all types of electrical interference and crosstalk issues (including NEXT and AXT) meaning a minimum of packet loss and a maximum of quality throughput.
This bulk Cat6 cable will do a great job when used for long-run wiring in home or small office LAN networks, and it’s a terrific choice for carrying audio or video signals in A/V production environments, home theaters and the like. It makes sense to go with Category 6 cable whether you’re replacing older cabling or doing a new network installation, because data transfer speeds and bandwidth needs will only increase as time goes on; Cat6 is state-of-the-art and won’t be outdated anytime soon. When you can get it at this price, it’s a steal.
This cable ships in orange, but it's available in several other colors as well.
Black, Grey, White, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Orange, Purple, Pink
