The Cat 7 standard draft was published in 2002 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is also known as Class F cabling. But it never confirmed and announced officially, so there is no formal standard for Category 7. With more expensive than Cat5e and Cat6 cabling, Cat7 cabling system does have a 15-year lifecycle (compared to estimated 10-year lifecycles for Cat5e and Cat6), which helps improve its overall return on investment (ROI).

Performance
Category 7 cable is a type developed base on shielding cables, to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks. The Cat7 cable provides performance up to 600 MHz maximum length of 100 meters.

Structures
CAT 7 SSTP CABLESCat 7 cable is able to achieve higher performance than preceding Ethernet standards such as Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6 and cat6a by requiring each of its twisted wire pairs to be fully shielded.  This is known as Screen Shielded Twisted Pair (SSTP) or Screened Foiled Twisted Pair (SFTP) wiring, and it almost completely eliminates alien crosstalk, electromagnetic and noise interference.

Cat 7 network patch cables

For the high performance of cat 7 cables, the cat 7 patch cables are become popular and welcomed in our daily life. Providing data transmitting speed as fast as fiber optics 10G base-t, more stable and reliable.Work with cable modem, DSL modem, router, hub, patch panel, or other network-enabled device.
