Cat 6a modular plug termination issues

As cat 6a is slowly getting less expensive, we have been seeing an interest in finding modular plus that would fit on 6a cable.  If you are not familiar with Cat 6a cable, this seems simple enough but Cat 6a unlike Cat 6 or 5e has quite a few variations as to how it is made which can make a big difference when looking to put a modular plug on the cable.  The biggest obstacles for putting a plug on this type if cable as outer cable diameter, shielding and individual conductor diameter. Recently, Stewart Connector introduced larger several newer plug designs to work with many types of Cat 6a cable. Click here to see the product sheet from Stewart.
