Category 7 cable (CAT7), (ISO / IEC 11801:2002 category 7/class F), is a cable standard for Ultra Fast Ethernet and other interconnect technologies that can be made to be backwards compatible with traditional CAT5 and CAT6 Ethernet cable.
The cable contains four twisted copper wire pairs, just like the earlier standards.
CAT 7 can be terminated in RJ-45 compatible GG45 electrical connectors which incorporate the RJ-45 standard, and a new type of connection to enable a smoother migration to the new standard.
When combined with GG-45 connectors, CAT7 cable is rated for transmission frequencies of up to 600 MHz.
Also being considered is a non-RJ-45-compatible standard developed by Siemon which forgoes compatibility in exchange for performance, and doubles the transmission frequencies of RJ-45.
