Patch Cord Considerations When Using CAT6 28AWG Stranded Copper Cables
TIA-568-C Standard specifies a maximum 100-meter length channel for copper cabling, which comprises 90 meters of permanent link cabling (typically solid cable) and a total of 10 meters of patch cabling. If you use 28-AWG patch cabling, you must adhere to a de-rating factor that reduces the maximum channel length achievable.
- If your goal is to maintain the 90-meter permanent link, a total of 6 meters of 28-AWG patch cord can be used, for a 96-meter channel length
- If your goal is to maintain 10 meters of total patch length, then the maximum permanent link length must be adjusted to 83 meters, for a maximum channel length of 93 meters
