Outdoor Cat6 SHIELDED Direct Burial cable available with Aluminum Foil shield and
even a drain wire. Depending on which one you order, you can get the LLDPE outter jacket which is far
superior to plain PVC jackets. Although meant for direct burial in the ground this cable is prefered
by installers that use is just outside and not burried.
The additional protection of the shielding and the gel is something
that they prefer. It is not great when you cut open a jacket that has been out there for a while and
find water dripping from inside. Gel is a significant preventative measure for this. If you want

right now for outdoor Cat6 the below LLDPE jacket type with Gel filled, flooded F/UTP is a good
project saver and not a project crasher.
