Ring and Ping offers Cat7a network cabling for businesses that require performance beyond 10/100BASE-T and even Gigabit specs.
Cat 7a cable is rated for 1.2 GHz per pair, which is twice the performance of Cat7 and the highest of any available copper cabling system. The high performance of Cat7a is particularly well-suited for:
Cat7a is often the best solution for medical imaging applications
where speed and bandwidth are absolutely critical.
Cat7a network cabling is the ultimate in “future-proof” cabling solutions.
Cat7a is a great investment in the “future-proofing” of your business.
With Cat7a systems, there are two types of connector options. The first is the GG45, which is backward compatible with RJ45 connectors by use of a switch within the jack. This switch changes the pole layout from the RJ45 eight contacts in a line to four pairs of contacts at the corners. This makes a Cat7A installation compatible with existing hardware so it can be reused. The GG45 is also recommended by the ISO as the preferred connector for data center installations.
The other connector type option is TERA, which is not backward compatible with RJ45 and has contacts arranged in pairs at each corner of the connector. While this is different than existing wiring options, the advantage is that the pairs can be used individually for different applications, meaning multiple applications can be supported by one cable. This can have a tremendous cost benefit, since one cable can support 100Mb Ethernet, phone, and video on separate wires.
Cat7a is a great investment in the “future-proofing” of your business. Since it allows for cable sharing with simultaneous support of multiple applications in a single cable administered through a single outlet, Cat7a is a great choice for a smarter, greener business.
