Either Cat5e, or Cat6a. There is
Cat6 does 10Gb, but only over short distances. Cat6a will do 10Gb over the same distance as CAt5e does 1Gb.
Are you saying that Cat6 (not 6a) can still do 10Gb over short distances like how Cat5e can do 1Gb over short distances?
Also, I have purchased a few long patch cables that are Cat6A already. Is it worth investing in full equipment of Cat5e or Cat6 to do it over again the proper way with a patch panel?
Is there any way to cut the ends off the Cat6A patch cords and terminate those into a patch panel or something so I can turn the improper way into the proper way some time down the line?
