Upgrading to CAT-6 Cables

(Check out this blog post from VELCRO® Brand about cable management solutions for Cat 6 cable! These products can help you save time when installing cable. -Teddi)

In today’s digital era, technology is constantly updating, but are your cables ready to handle the additional data flow? Upgrading technology and software helps a business function more efficiently, but it also demands higher bandwidth that needs to be transferred through advanced cabling. It’s been said that 80 – 90% of new networks will be equipped with CAT 6 cables so if you need to future-proof your data center with CAT 6 cables, here is why reusable VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is necessary to use as your cable ties.

Reusable Cable Ties Ease the Installation Process of CAT 6 Cables

Upgrading to CAT 6 Cables

Ripping out all outdated cables is a laborious process if you’re using traditional cable ties. VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is built for projects such as these. Instead of having to cut and throw out plastic ties, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape can simply be unfastened and reused on your new cables.

If you use cable ties to indicate specific cable pathways, you can use VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape on your new CAT 6 cables, without having to start your new installation from scratch. Since you won’t need to discard your old cable ties, you’ll save on material costs.

Eliminates Damage to the New Cables, Saving Costs & Materials

Upgrading to CAT 6 Cables

You’ve made a serious investment in new technology and cables that will take the business into the future. Why risk damaging this equipment with cable ties that can easily be overtightened? The soft, flexible material of VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape won’t crease or strain cables when cinching them down. These ties are also TIA Standard (568.D-0, 2018) and BICSI (ITSIMM, 7th Edition) compliant for further assurance.

In the event you need to reposition your CAT 6 cables, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is unfastened by hand, while traditional cable ties need to be cut with sharp tools. It’s much more affordable to replace a cable tie than it is to replace a CAT 6 cable.

With technology constantly evolving, upgrading your data center to CAT 6 cables is a wise investment to keep a business prosperous well into the future. If you’re going to spend the time and money on these cables, invest in your cable ties with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape.
