Cat6 Outdoor Bulk Ethernet LAN Network Cable, 550MHz Bare Copper – 1000 Feet, Black
Running outdoor cable for Ethernet networks or other applications can present a major logistical problem; most network cabling is designed for indoor use, so there’s no real protection against the elements if you try to run it outside. The solution is choosing a cable specifically designed to be used outdoors. And our Cmple Outdoor Cat6 bulk LAN cable fits the bill, when you need ultimate performance as well as protection from rain, snow and sun.
Cat6 cable is the best you can get for data transmission, and we’ll talk more about that shortly. But let’s look at what makes this bulk cable perfect for outdoor use: it’s triple-sheathed, meaning the wires carrying your data have three layers of protection from the elements.
First, a layer of PET film (polyethylene terephthalate film) surrounds the twisted pairs to insulate them from water, carbon dioxide and oxidation; PET is known for its strength, stability and insulating properties. Next, a durable layer of PVC surrounds the PET-enclosed wire. Finally, a UV-resistant, low-density polyethylene jacket covers the entire cable for further protection against the elements and also the rays of the sun. This triple sheath prevents the cable from degrading or disintegrating over time. It’s even strong enough to allow the cabling to be buried underground for long-run outdoor installation.
Now, for the bulk twisted wire cable itself. As mentioned, this is Category 6 UTP cable, which is the best you can get for networking. It provides extraordinary bandwidth capabilities (up to 550 MHz) and transfer speed (designed for gigabit networks), along with the highest-level of cross-talk prevention due to the extra twists in the cable used to make Cat6 cabling. That combination means lightning-fast data transmission with minimal packet loss or other interference issues, particularly important in outdoor uses where the network cabling may run close to outdoor electrical transmission wires. It’s also terrific for carrying audio or video signals over long runs with very little signal degradation or loss.
