Cat 6e SFTP cable is an enhanced version of Cat 6 that adds specifications for far end crosstalk. It was formally defined in 2001 in the TIA/EIA-568-B standard, which no longer recognizes the original Cat 6 specification.
Although 1000BASE-T was designed for use with Cat 6 cable, the tighter specifications associated with Cat 6e SFTP cable and connectors make it an excellent choice for use with 1000BASE-T. Despite the stricter performance specifications, Cat 6e SFTP cable does not enable longer cable distances for Ethernet networks: cables are still limited to a maximum of 328+ ft (100+ m) in length (normal practice is to limit fixed (“horizontal”) cables to 90 m to allow for up to 5 m of patch cable at each end). Cat 6e SFTP cable performance characteristics and test methods are defined in A/EIA-568-B.2-2001
