The Cat.8 system from EFB-Elektronik:
For the perfect link setup

With us you will find all Cat.8 products that you need to set up a complete Cat.8 route: From keystone and field-assembly plugs to patch cables and installation cables to installation sections and distribution panels. With the Cat.8-CLASS 1 standard you can achieve speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second (Gbit/s) on cable runs of up to 30 meters. The Cat.8 cables reach maximum operating frequencies of 2,000 MHz. In this way, existing copper infrastructures can continue to be used - without costly conversion to fiber optics. The use of Cat.8 is possible in the rack interconnect area as well as in the backbone area or when connecting floor distributors.

4 facts about Cat.8

  • A Cat.8 cable is a typical S/FTP (Screened Foiled Twisted Pair) cable with 4 twisted wire pairs, each with its own foil shield.
  • In the case of established IT structures in small to medium-sized data centers in which no fiber optic cabling has yet been laid, the use of Cat.8 is a sensible alternative.
  • In the case of established IT structures in small to medium-sized data centers in which no fiber optic cabling has yet been laid, the use of Cat.8 is a sensible alternative.
