We are at a stand still with some Ethernet wiring runs over a piece of information we received from a Ekahau engineer and wanted to get a second opinion from you experts :-) The question is (I am fairly new to this stuff):
is there an advantage to using shielded CAT6 cable in an installation opposed to non-shielded? The reason I ask this is we have a lot of interference on the 2.4 spectrum (not for sure yet but I suspect a lot of this interference could be external to the site surveyed and possibly due to harmonics). We were advised to go with shielded cable to use as an insurance policy grounding out any 2.4 or 5 harmonics, etc that might get into the Ethernet.

Thanks for any help/suggestions on this matter!
