Re: [802.3af] Category 6 cabling
I know of no current issues with respect to manufacturers warranties.
The current (DC) that is applied is de-rated considerably from
established connector requirements, and are designed to existing
specifications for current capacity of cable and have been de-rated for
confined cable installation.
The intention of the standard is to not break any existing cabling or
devices. Of course if there are any known issues, the committee would be
interested in hearing about that.
