Cat6 test result more than 100m fail


Aug 1, 2012
Hello, we install cat6 at university. some of the length exceed 100m. Fluke test show FAIL result. does it really matter for the usage in learning and researching? or does it affecting the quality of IP phone?
the max distance for CAT5e and CAT6 is 100m.

you can try but the network switch and phone might not put out a strong enough signal to transmit the data and therefore you will not have any phone connection at all.

you might make it a research project on how to extend a connection pass 100m
