General but necessary information and specifications for this cable:
TIA/EIA is abbreviation of Telecommunication Industry Association and Electronics Industry Alliance that sets telecommunication standards in the US. CM Cable patch cable complies with the latest TIA/EIA telecommunication cable standards.
There are two standards for wiring color code, 568A and 568B. While there's no difference in connectivity between 568A and 568B, 568B is the most prevalent wiring color code in the US. Our patch cable is 568B wired.
UTP and FTP:
UTP is Unshielded Twisted Pair and FTP is Shielded Twisted Pair. FTP cable is wrapped in metal foil. Both have the same Ethernet communication performance, but FTP has better protection against Electro-Magnetic noise from outside. UTP is accepted for residential and general commercial installation
CM rated jacket:
CM for communication. It is set by UL (Underwriters laboratory) to indicate the wire jacket material safety. CM rating is safe to use in residential and general commercial installations.
24AWG and Stranded:
AWG (American Wire Gauge) indicates wire thickness. Higher the number, thinner the wire. 24AWG or 26AWG is commonly used for ethernet cables. Stranded wire is a bundle of thin wires as opposed to solid wire that is single solid wire. Stranded wire is more flexible than solid wire and commonly used for indoor network wiring such as patch cable.
Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive. This directive restricts the use of hazardous materials such as lead or mercury in the manufacture of electronic and electrical equipment. CM Cable cables are all RoHS compliant.
