search switch

any help will be appreciate


Why do you want a CAT6 switch? There is no standard available for that now. Some vendors are talking about CAT6 but no specs for that standard have been released.

Category 6 cable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

cat 7 is already a standard… so i think cat 6 is already a standard…

why? because my old switch is broken and i want something faster…

For Gigabit Ethernet, you can use CAT5e and by using CAT6 cable, you will not get better performance with the currently available interconnections even though CAT6 says that it can handle 250MHz. CAT6 equipments are rare and it may not become a widespread standard (So, manufacturers are still reluctant to produce stuff conforming to that standard).
