Not sure but I bet it is. CCA cable is not allowed for any ethernet cables. It would not meet the standards. I forget exactly which standard says the metal must be copper. When the standards where written many years ago CCA cable did not exist so they do not actually say you can't use it they just say the wires need to be made out of copper.

This company appears to make great efforts to sell only certified cable so I doubt they would sell trash cables

There is an article from Commscope back from 2012 about CCA: https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/read/12317237/copper-clad-aluminum-cca-commscope

Do you think it's worth it to buy from this trusted brand over the previous cables that I have selected? The previous one had 23awg and solid. The Commscope cable only costs a bit more.

That's household electrical power using CCA and does not take high frequency issues into consideration because they just don't have to. 60Hz, for USA electrical systems, is pretty far from the frequencies used in networks. The copper cladding on he outside of the Aluminum core causes the signal to reflect within the wire. The cladding acts as a mirror and the interface between the copper and aluminum causes distortion for what signal does come thru. The longer the distance the more the signals becomes a distorted mess.

There is an article about Commscope selling their cca and steel assets to Fushi Copperweld here: https://www.cablinginstall.com/cable/article/16474067/commscope-sells-off-copperclad-aluminum-steel-assets-will-close-nc-manufacturing-site
The article says that they will continue to make GroundSmart products.
Does this mean that my cable will not be cca?
