Category 6 cabling solutions

The most reliable and flexible high-performance connectivity solution

Although Category 6 standards were created to ensure a minimum performance, many of today’s twisted-pair cables can barely meet these benchmarks when tested in real-world applications. But SYSTIMAX® GigaSPEED® XL has become the industry-leading Category 6 U/UTP solution in the world because it exceeds all industry standards by as much as six decibels.

Our GigaSPEED XL is so advanced it can support six connection points while still surpassing Category 6 performance criteria. It can also handle network line speeds in excess of 1 gigabit per second. Plus, when combined with GigaSPEED XL components, it can produce a high-performance connectivity solution that’s unmatched by any other. Best of all, we guarantee performance with our 25-year extended product warranty and applications assurance.


  • Available as InstaPATCH® Cu preterminated assemblies
  • Compatible with imVision® AIM intelligent platform
  • Offered in plenum, non-plenum and low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) versions
