Cable Guidelines

Recommended cables are CAT7 shielded foiled twisted pairs:

Daetwyler 7702 Flexible patch cable

Daetwyler 7120 Bulk cable

Note: Distances are achieved using single lengths of trunk/bulk cable with two 3m CAT7a patch cables. For each additional break/patch connection reduce distance by 5m. Preferably patch cables should be of type CAT7a and less than 2m. Patch cables over 2m must be CAT7a
