    Default PoE using 'flat' Cat6

    Anyone used flat Cat6 cable with a PoE device?

    Only just discovered flat Cat6 cable, I thought the way the pairs were twisted reduced the loss, so having it flat, does that not loose some of that???

    Flat cable is better cause the 1s can run straight and faster.

    The only flat cables i have seen are short patch cables less than 1m long, in which case the twisting can be ignored, because of the short distance. shouldn't be a problem with PoE
