[Also known as Category 7 Cable] A cable standard for Ethernet and other interconnect technologies that can be made to be backwards compatible with traditional CAT-5 and CAT-6 Ethernet cable.

CAT-7 features even more strict specifications for crosstalk and system noise than CAT-6. To achieve this, shielding has been added for individual wire pairs and the cable as a whole. The CAT-7 cable standard has been created to allow 10 gigabit Ethernet over 100m of copper cabling.

The cable contains four twisted copper wire pairs, just like the earlier standards. CAT-7 can be terminated either with RJ45 compatible electrical connectors which incorporate the RJ45 standard or with TERA connectors. When combined with GG-45 or TERA connectors, CAT-7 cable is rated for transmission frequencies of up to 600 MHz.
