cat 6 jack

cat_6_jackTerminating a cat 6 jack is a specialised operation.  The termination requires a more precise stripping of the insulation before the terminating tool is applied.

This requirement for crimping a cat 6 jack on to the ends of cat 6 cable is imposed in order to maintain the performance of the overall cabling from cat 6 patch panel, through the patching leads, the building structured-cabling and the faceplate and finally the fly-lead – end-to-end – connecting server to computer. 

Your cat 6 jack is not much different to the cat 5e equivalent other than tighter tolerance during manufacturing and a slightly improved coating over the base metal of the conductors.  The construction of cat6cable differs from cat5cable in that it has a central plastic core separating the four pairs of twisted wires marginally more than for the cat5 specification.  cat_6_jack.pdf

The result:  a cat 6 jack delivers higher frequencies over a greater distance enabling you to theoretically download Internet data faster.
