This Cat8 Ethernet patch cable is designed for high-speed data center networks. Cat8 has superior performance for noise restriction and crosstalk than any of its predecessors. Each pair of wires is shielded with an aluminum mylar foil to reduce crosstalk. These cables also have a braided shield, which protects them from outside electromagnetic interference.
Designed for Top-of-Rack and End-of-Row or Middle-of-Row network topologies capable of delivering 10, 25, and 40 Gigabit data rates over BASE-T technology with RJ45 ends, making it a drop-in replacement for existing Cat6a.
Cat8 offers greater flexibility when compared to QSFP+ and Twinax DAC assemblies which typically cost significantly more and are often much more restrictive.
