Many communication systems in the Server rooms as well as data centers employ the usage of Cat8. Because the RJ45 endpoints are standardized, they are particularly helpful while network upgrades without having to revamp the equipment completely. Cat8 cables feature Point over Ethernet technology, making it easier to install them and allowing for space savings in server rooms.
The Cat5e, Cat6, or Cat6a, are all widely used. You may even have familiarity with Category 7 if you operate in situations with more robust internet connectivity. One of the primary factors that differentiate the upgraded category is that a higher number often denotes a newer technology that can support higher data rates which applies in the case of Cat8 as well. Cat7 significantly raised the bar and Cat8 is even better for established businesses. Cat8 is drawing attention since its performance leaps multiple iterations. It transmits data from 25 Gbps to 40 Gbps using 2 Ghz signals. It’s a significant update, and the ramifications are making waves in all areas of the IT industry.
