    What is a Cat6a Slim Patch Cable?

    A Cat6a slim patch cable is an ethernet cable, which is used with wired networks and connect devices like computers, routers and switches with a local network.

  5. Server Room Build Out

    ShowMeCables and our network cabling installation partners from INC Installs recently built out a new server room. We ran Cat6 cable for the main backbone. Everything was housed in two Middle Atlantic racks. We used ECore LED patch panels to connect the wire and used a variety of cable management products, including cable ties, Velcro, rear horizontal management, cable ladder and Neat Patch patch panels. Our installation team completed the project in a timely manner and did an amazing job. The installation made it easy to administer the network and keep it running. If you need help with a build out, contact our partners at INC Installs. Or, if you prefer a more DIY approach, you can stock up on materials at ShowMeCables.
