CAT6A Structured Cabling Benefits

10-Gigabit Ethernet

CAT6A Ethernet cable supports 10-Gigabit speeds over 100-meter LAN segments at lower costs compared to fiber cabling, making them the primary choice for new installs.

High Power over Ethernet

CAT6A can support the ever-increasing demand of Power over Ethernet (PoE), including 4PPoE (99 watts) without the risk of cable or circuit burns.

Wireless Networks

Current 802.11ac/ad access points can deliver speeds up to 6.7 Gbps, future standards are likely to support up 10-Gigabit. To really benefit from these higher bandwidth, CAT6A is recommended for horizontal cabling to WiFi access points. 

UHD AV Distribution

CAT6A supports ultra-high-definition video-over-IP distribution, making this solution perfect for 4K 60 AV-over-IP, KVM-over-IP, and digital signage applications.

HDBaseT Connectivity

HDBaseT is a popular technology for point-to-point extensions of uncompressed full HD video, audio, Ethernet, power and control data over a single CAT5e/6/6A cable. Black Box features HDBaseT recommended CAT6A cables delivering the best performance.


CAT6A is compatible with existing CAT5e and CAT6 installs. It is also compliant with the TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 and ISO/IEC 11801 industry standards, ETL verified and UL approved.

Reduced Alien Crosstalk

CAT6A fully meets the specification for alien crosstalk reductions, means it is not affected by wire in nearby cables granting a reliable transmission. 

Premium Performance

Black Box ensures high quality in its shielded and unshielded CAT6A components and regular testing by independent institutes. Their design ensures effortless installs and maximum conductivity for high-speed signal transmissions.

Great Choice

Select from shielded or unshielded models, cables with solid or stranded wires, CM, CMR, Plenum or LZ0H jackets in multiple colors, molded, snagless, slim and/or lockable connectors.
