CAT6A or CAT6?
The client is building a 100K square feet new manufacturing facility that potentially may have 500+ network cable runs - data, voice, WiFi APs, security cameras, etc. This new facility will be ready to occupy in less than a year.
The cost of deploying CAT6A can be 2.5x or 3x more expensive than CAT6, which is about $20K~30K more.
Does the cost justify the future proof of 10GB?
If you were me, will you propose CAT6A or CAT6? And importantly, the reasoning to convince the client?
PS - all the network devices (Servers, PCs, network switches, etc) that will be moved to the new facility will be 1GB
