You requested. We've delivered. 

West Penn Wire has recently expanded our already extensive Category Cable breadth to now include Category 7 S/FTP Twisted Pair cables.

Category 7 cables help to meet the demand for the growing presence of IP access points and networking security applications exceeding speeds of 10 Gigabits networking (10G) bandwidths of up to 600 MHz.


Where can I use Category 7 Cables?

This cable is ideal for 4K resolution video because the signal delivers a superior performance with high bandwidth applications. The shielding of the 4 (four) twisted pairs improves the noise resistance within the cables.
