Category 6 and 6a cable must be properly installed and terminated to meet specifications. Incorrect installation practices include kinking or bending the cable too tightly. The cable bend radius should be no less than 4 times the outer diameter of the cable. Incorrect termination practices include untwisting the wire pairs or stripping the outer jacket back more than 1/2 inch.
All shielded cables must be grounded for safety and effectiveness. A continuous shield connection maintained from end to end. Ground loops develop when there is more than one ground connection and the difference in common mode voltage potential at these ground connections introduces noise into the cabling.
