Added value to Cat. 8 technology:

Other than the copper-based network solutions, Cat. 8 technology offers a number of improvements. Data rates from up to 10 Gbit/s are no longer sufficient in many cases. Faster glass fiber solutions are not suitable either since they are very cost-intensive for a widespread utilization. Cat. 8 patch cables are also suitable for 25 Gbit/s to 40 Gbit/s Base-Ethernet networks, so that you don’t have to interconnect multiple 10 Gbit/s Base-T-Links to one logical connection. Consequently, less space and ports are being needed, which are both essential in computer centres. In addition to this the maximum bandwidth has increased to 2000 MHz / 2 Ghz.

These new Cat 8.1 patch cables are used advantageously in TCP/IP and UDP application where correct data information is critical, e.g. 4K and 8K video streaming, high quality music streaming, gaming, data centres and in-building installations. With the performance increased 4 times to 2000 MHz it eliminates almost 100% of incorrect data being sent or not being corrected by applications as there is much more bandwidth to work with. This can be very important to avoid video loss (for example) in streaming or avoiding stuttering in music streaming and voice communication.

High-quality cable structure:

The shielded conductor consists by 99,99% of oxygen free copper (OFC). This enables an increased signal transmission and a higher breaking strength of the cable. The RJ45 plugs are shielded and equipped with 50µ gold plated copper contacts, to ensure a faultless signal transmission.

F/FTP shielding:

The F/FTP shielding (PiMF) of the cable and the shielded RJ45 plugs provide for a consistently high and loss-free signal transmission.

LSZH sheath for more safety:

The low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cable sheath releases, contrary to PVC cables, only very little toxic fumes and smoke in case of a fire. Because of this, the cable is ideally suited for installation indoors - they are required by law in public areas.


Cat. 8.1 patch cables are fully downward compatible to previous versions of RJ45 plugs. They can therefore be easily integrated into already existing installations.

Super Fast CAT 8.1 F/FTP Patch Cables

When do you need a CAT8 cable?

Category 8 or CAT8 cable is a recent network cable standard. It is (partly) the successor of CAT6 and has a signal bandwidth of 2 gigahertz (GHz). As a result, this cabling is able to transport data with a high data rate. CAT8 cable supports 25 and 40 Gb / s over a distance of 30 meters. This cabling is specially designed to transport data at a speed of 40 Gb / s over 30 meters. It is focused on applications in data centers for connecting equipment that has 40GBase-T ports. If you are in possession of equipment with the fast category 8 data ports, then a CAT8 cable is a must to achieve the maximum data transfer with this equipment. This network cable has been standardized by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). Pay attention: TIA has never released a standard for CAT7 cable and will probably not do that anymore. Instead, the TIA has issued category 8 instead.

Difference between CAT8 cable and CAT7 / CAT7a cable

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) have both adopted a CAT7 and CAT7a standard. The TIA has never done this and immediately switches from category 6 and 6a to 8. The category 8 standard has been set exclusively by the TIA and has not been adopted by ISO or IEC. In the past, we always strived to make cabling "backward compatible" with its predecessor. This means that if a cable of a lower category is used, the maximum performance of this lower category can be achieved. Because TIA never adopted CAT7, the situation arises that the CAT8 standard is less strict at certain points than CAT7 / 7a.

CAT 8.1

26/7 AWG OFC Stranded Pure Copper Conductor | 2GHz Max Bandwidth | 40 Gps Max data rate

Cat8.1 cable offers up to 40 Gbps of transfer speed and up to 2GHz of bandwidth by utilizing copper conductors and durable RJ45 connectors. While these cables are the latest and greatest in data transferring cables, it is also backwards compatible with Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6A, and Cat7 ports. Following T-568B wiring, this Cat8.1 cable is the perfect solution for any ethernet needs for home or commercial use.
