CAT 8 Cable Reel - 500' White Bulk CAT8.1 Ethernet, 40G CMR, 23AWG Solid Copper

Our S/FTP shielded CAT8.1 bulk Ethernet cables are ideal for indoor short runs up to 30 meters in length. Primary application is for high performance data centers. Composed of four individually shielded pairs of 23 gauge solid bare copper conductors, with an overall tinned copper braid shield. The CAT8.1 bulk Ethernet cable has an overall CMR Rated jacket and sequential footage markings on the jacket so you always know how much it left.

This bulk CAT8 cable is suitable for 25G networking but has the ability to reach up to 40Gbps speeds. This cable has a conventional 4 pair, 8 conductor wiring configuration. These twisted pairs are individually shielded in order to repel electromagnetic interference (EMI) in electrically noisy environments. They also keep Alien Cross Talk down to prevent from slowing down transmission speeds. Shielding is a vital part of how fast the signal seed is in bulk CAT 8 cables. That is why it is important to test the continuity of your shielding to ensure no loss is occurring. This Cat8 1 cable is sold on a wooden spool of 500 or 1000 feet.

What sets CAT8 version 1 apart from CAT8 version 2? First CAT8.1 is backwards compatible with the Class I standard RJ45 while CAT8.2 is designed to be compatible with Class II Fa standard connectors. While we still recommend our CAT8 Modular plug to be used with this cable it is compatible with legacy connectors. The structure is also different in the CAT8.1 compared to the 8.2. There is far more shielding and insulation in the 8.2 to reduce interference even further if meeting the max frequencies. Our solid CAT8.1 cable has individually shielded pairs (S/FTP), and is quality manufactured to meet and or exceed product certifications which uphold to the new ANSI/TIA-568C-2.D standards.


Don't forget to add some CAT8 Connectors and CAT8 Keystone Jacks to go with your Cat8 cables!

We've got them as well to keep your RJ45 network and patch cables running as fast as possible! 


If you don’t quite need a whole box or feel like building these yourself then you may be interested to know that we can custom build a wide variety of patch cables on demand. If you’re already setup with the tools you’ll need as well as endsjacks and the Ethernet Cable DIY knowledge then it’s not a problem. If you’d rather just have us do it then we have a set of easy to use custom length ethernet cable calculators you can use to quickly price out what you need and we can build them for you!
