DIY cat7 cables?


I would love to build my own cat7 cables.

I would like to know where to find the following items:

1) 200 feet of bulk cat7 cable (or can I simply buy 2 100ft cat7 cables and convert them to smaller sizes myself?)

2) What type of rj45 jacks do I need to make them? Any suggestions from expert cat builders?

3) Is the wiring different from cat5/6? Diagram anywhere for cat7?

I want to build both crossover and straight through cat7.

I need 105 feet for my networking gear, but I figure 95 feet of practice is reasonable. :)

Is this what you are looking to do?

At 600Mz, it would take only a very small deviation in termination to screw things up.

Also, look here:

and it shows CAT 6 only emerging.   .... Thinkpads_User
