Unshielded Cat6 cable susceptible to interference - RJ45 Patch Leads
During testing of the Cat6 cables when used in 10BASE-T gigabit Ethernet transmission, the firm found that they were "seriously susceptible to electromagnetic interference and alien crosstalk".
The results came as a surprise to Brand Rex, which assumed the cabling was suitable for such applications.
As a result the company has recommended using shielded cabling for 10Gbps Ethernet networking solutions.
Earlier this year, Bill Woodruff, co-founder of network equipment manufacturer Aquantia, said that the 10Gbps Ethernet standard will become as widespread as RJ45 connector technology.
He claimed that both shielded and unshielded cabling technology is already used by a large number of firms around the globe.
"As 10BASE-T further matures, its traditional Ethernet attributes of low cost, ease of use, and flexibility become very compelling in the adoption decision," Mr Woodruff said.
