Red STP CAT6 Cable, Solid 1,000 ft. bulk pull box
STP or Shielded Twisted Pair CAT6 cable is probably more cable than the average home user needs but in the workplace it may be the ideal (or even the only) solution available. The Mylar foil shielding protects your data as it travels through the four twisted pairs of 24 gauge solid copper wires by wrapping it in a thin metal sleeve thus keeping electrical interference from things like fluorescent lights and electrical lines found in a drop ceiling or inside walls at a minimum. Cables For Less CAT6 Shielded Cable comes in a variety of colors.
Our Bulk STP Cable comes packaged in a pull box, providing you with 1000 feet of high quality, shielded, 4-pair, solid, 550 MHz Cat6 Cable, ready for termination and routing. Simply pull the length required for your installation straight from the box and terminate at your leisure. These boxes are a great aid in large scale network installations and other long distance cable runs. And like all of our bulk networking CAT5 or CAT6 Cables, these are constructed with only high-quality components that can be counted on for high performance! So let us help you make the connections you need, and help us save the world... from high priced cables.
STP cable, short for shielded twisted pair, is typically used to reduce electrical interference. Because most cable that is ran through a building is not crossing over fluorescent lights or draped over electrical wires the shielded cable is not commonly used and the plenum version of this cable which is intended to be used in plenum spaces (areas such as heating ducts etc. which allow fire and smoke to travel quickly) can be quite expensive since it is coated with a jacket that reduces the levels of toxicity in the smoke and is less common.
Of course check with the proper agencies as well as consulting your county, city, state or federal guidelines before assuming anything in regard to what cable is the right cable for your application.

While terminating Category 6 twisted pair cables be sure the natural twist of each pair is carried through as close as practical to the point of mechanical termination. TIA/EIA 568-B.2 requires no more than 0.5 inch (13mm) untwisted for Category 5E as it will effect performance at high bit rates. Cabling should be secured and placed in a manner which prevents kinking and tight cinching. Do not excessively bend the cable greater than four times the cable diameter. Cabling should not be subject to greater than 25 pounds of pulling tension (110N).
For snag resistant operation the box must be handled and stored in the upright position. Be sure to dispense / pull cable while the box is in the upright position only. For ideal conditions this cable must be stored at or above 32 degrees fahrenheit 48 hours prior to installation.
