I'm reconstructing our home and I'm thinking to upgrade the network. A part from the computer network I want to run some smart home applications and connect sensors over the network wires with PoE. As the walls are torn, now I have the chance to add new network cable for the years to come. I'm thinking to install CAT7A cable as it has bigger broadband and offers future possibilities to for higher speeds with upgrade of the other network components.
I know that the specifications say that CAT7 and CAT7A cables should be terminated with GG45 or Tera connectors for best performance, but now I read here and here that CAT8 Keystone RJ45 connectors can also be used for termination of CAT7 cables as well. Is this true or is this some kind of marketing trick? Has someone already used Keystone 8 RJ45 connectors to terminate CAT7A cable?
If it is possible to do this I will hire a company with experience in the field to do the cabling.
