Category 7 Ethernet cables seems like a great way to future-proof your home network but there are a couple issues. The first issue is that any use case for these cables will likely max out at 10 Gbps, which is the same as Cat 6A. Cat 7 sbolsters a hypothetical speed of 40 Gbps, which is very great, however the frequencies that permit Cat 7 cabling to achieve such amazing paces aren’t as of now upheld by any home systems administration hardware. This means that your Cat 7 cable is acting like a robust Cat 6A compatible cable, and no more.Networking Installer NYC
The problem lies with the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) and its goal of establishing a standard for cables. The TIA does not officialy recognize the Cat 7 standard, likely due to Cat 6A achieving similar 10 Gbps speeds. Cat 7 uses shielding to achieve a 600 Mhz max frequency and up to 10 Gbps, which has lead to its use in some audio and video networks.
Cat 7 meets the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) Class F requirements in things like frequency and line noise. The TIA’s category-naming scheme really comes down to simply establishing a standard, starting with POTS or plain old telephone service at Cat 1. Previously the ISO classes have lined up with the TIA categories likely leading to the unofficial naming.Networking Installer NYC
