Cat. 6A / Class EA system

  • The Cat.6A / Class EA system allows for a 10 Gigabit/s transmission speed, guarantees the transmission of all standardized protocols including 10GBASE-T and ensures a bandwidth of 500 MHz. 
  • This system is disadvantaged from a long-term perspective as only components from a certain manufacturer are suitable for this solution. 
  • From 2006 to 2010, Cat.6A / Class EA systems played a major role, as they were the only way to implement cabling with performance of 10 Gigabit/s. 
  • This solution has been surpassed by the advantages of Cat.6A interoperable components. The Cat.6A/Class EA systems meets the expectations and needs of users with the highest demands on the quantity of transferred data. 

Definitions and features 

The Cat.6A/Class EA system is a group of products, creating a channel that complies with channel level requirements of Cat.6A and Class Eperformance defined in the U.S. standard ANSI/TIA 568-C.2 and international standard ISO/IEC 11801:2011 (Ed. 2.2) on the channel level. The certificate confirming compliance with the standards lists the tested topology and all the components. Certification on the permanent link level for Cat.6A / Class EA system is not sufficient and is for informational purposes only.

Cat.6A system cabling ensures:

  • Immunity to electromagnetic interference and Alien Crosstalk 
  • Performance category Cat.6A and Class EA for channel topology mentioned in the certificate only (one of the following: 2 -, 3 - or 4 - connector channel)
  • Performance category Cat.6A and Class EA for channel with components mentioned in the certificate

Warranties, certificates and quality control


  • KELine® Cat.6A system is certified for 2-connector channel by 3P international independent laboratory according to IEEE P802.3an Class EA ISO/IEC 11801-1:2017 (Ed. 1.0), ISO/IEC 11801-2:2017 (Ed. 1.0), EN 50173-1:2011,Category 6A ANSI/TIA-568-C.2: 2009.
  • Note: Installation cables and patch cables used in the KELine®Cat.6A / Class EA system are also Cat.6A interoperablecomponents certified on a component level.
  • A 25-year warranty is applied on all installations performed by certified “KELine® installer” and “KELine® planner” after an audit of test data.
