Lorex Technology — a provider of small business and consumer security systems based in Canada — has released a new outdoor, underground CAT6 cable, the company said.
This new CAT6 cable has drastic improvements over older CAT5/CAT5e models, including faster transfer speed capabilities, weather shielded cable jackets and is CMR Riser rated.
The Lorex CAT6 outdoor extension cable is able to transfer up to 10Gbps at a distance of 180ft/55m, versus the previous 1Gbps limit for CAT5e cables. This additional speed is due to an increase in frequency. CAT6 cables have higher frequency rates at 250Mhz per second. This translates into 250 million cycles per second, meaning that data is transmitted 2x faster than older cable models. The increase in transfer speed doesn´t increase crosstalk, as the twisted cable design and stronger shielding greatly reduces interference from other electromagnetic signals.
