Category 6A/Class EA, UTP patch cords shall be constructed of 24 AWG stranded copper cable with an enhanced performance modular plug on each end. Copper conductors in patch cable shall be twisted in pairs and separated by a quadrant separator. All four pairs shall be surrounded by matrix tape and a flame retardant jacket. The patent pending matrix tape shall suppress alien crosstalk and allow 10 Gb/s transmission. Patch cord cable shall be offered in multiple colors and lengths for design flexibility with a strain relief boot on each modular plug. All patch cords shall be compatible with both T568A and T568B wiring schemes.
