Premium high-speed cabling for Cat8 premise applications that allow CMR-rated PVC jackets, such as high-end 40GBase-T data centers.

  • 22 AWG 4-pair solid copper cable rated for 25/40 Gbps networks—4x faster than Cat6a
  • Recommended for premise installations in air ducts and drop ceilings
  • Dispels EMI/RFI line noise that can destroy data and affect equipment performance
  • Meets IEEE 802.3, TIA 568.2-D and ISO/IEC 11801 industry standards
  • 1000 ft. roll of cable comes in blue for custom color-coded applications


High-Speed Cat8 S/FTP Ethernet Cable Up to 4 Times Faster Than Cat6a
This Cat8 cable transmits 25/40 Gbps data, voice and audio/video through high-speed 25G/40G equipment, such as network switches, modems, routers, adapters, hubs and patch panels. Not only is its 40 Gbps data transfer speed four times that of Cat6a cable, but this Cat8 cable also supports bandwidth up to 2 GHz (2000 MHz) for carrying information and streaming video with no lag.

Premium Construction for Superior Performance
Manufactured from 22 AWG copper wire, this 1000-foot (305-meter) roll of four-pair solid-core cabling is rated for speeds up to 40 Gbps. Simply pull what you need for your installation off the spool, and keep the remainder rolled away. The N223-01K-WH meets most current industry standards, including IEEE 802.3, TIA 568.2-D and ISO/IEC 11801.

Premium Protection from EMI/RFI Line Noise Helps Your Equipment Perform Better
The S/FTP (shielded foiled twisted pair) cable’s foil shielding blocks disruptive line noise that can disturb your electronics and inflict hardware damage or data loss. Near-end crosstalk (NEXT) levels are practically eliminated, so you don’t have to worry about keeping your cables separated in crowded pathways or spend valuable time on field testing.

Blue Jacket Helps Avoid Misidentification That Can Cause Costly Downtime
This Cat8 Ethernet cable features a blue flame-retardant CMR-rated PVC jacket, which allows easy, fast identification in a crowded rack, patch panel or workstation and helps prevent the cable from becoming accidentally disconnected.
