Slim-Net™ 28-AWG CAT6/CAT6A Ethernet Patch Cable

Optimize space and cable handling in high-density data centers and telecom rooms.

With a diameter of only .161”, 28-AWG cable is almost half the size of a 24-AWG cable. When you calculate the physical cable area, you’ll actually save more than 50% space when compared to traditional cables. Choose from seven lengths and seven colors.

Save space

Gain almost 50% more space in front of equipment and in cable pathways. Perfect for high-density installs.
Improve Airflow

Thinner cables mean a lot more space resulting in better air flow and equipment cooling.

Handle easily

It’s easier to patch thinner cables and to see port assignments making installs and MACs go more smoothly.
Reduce cable management

With a bend radius that’s 70% tighter, you can easily route cables without horizontal cable managers.

Be assured of top-quality, guaranteed-for-life performance for today’s network applications. 

Big performance
Black Box 28-AWG cables conform to all 568-C.2 specs, pass all tests, and are guaranteed for life.

Run PoE
