    If you Can't understand the price of those cables, perhaps these may give your mind a little WTF Moment ...

    TRD8RGMT5-01 | Quality L-Com Cables | ITM Components

    I have used a few of these type of cables in industry and it's always best if possible to get these professionally pre-assembled but of course if you have a complex run you may have to assemble on site and that can be a $^%$& of a job,

    Interestingly these are all 5e rating as it's normal to go Fibre optic for higher speed usage
    Those cables with the Cannon Connectors are for specialized installs, not for Enterprise or residential.

    This whole topic has slide down a cliff.

    I wonder how many they sell.
    More than you realize to the Military and manufacturing industry that deals with gasses, chemicals, etc.. L-Com is great stuff, but way overpriced for a lot of what they sell.

    When your plant costs you Thousands, (or millions), of Pounds, (or dollars), per hour when it's not working you will spend quite a bit on reliable Hardware and connectivity

    I remember a case when one of our engineers was called out to a fault at a steel mill during the night, he arrived to be told that he could not proceed into the mill as he did not have the correct documents - Our engineer suggested he called his plant engineer,

    the security man did this and was told to a, let him through , b, pay the company the 20,000 an hour it would cost waiting for the paperwork, and/or go to personnel at the end of his shift to organise his leaving his job
    Those Cannon plug cables are not just for a certain industry. They are also used for the US Military on their equipment. Of course you are going to use a more rugged connector and have to meet specific criteria in those types of industries. Really do not know how that it applies to the original question.

    I have frequent disconnections and also have a CAT 6a cable. I might try with a CAT 7.
    I have just got them, they are really beautiful and the fabric gives it a nice touch, they feel more reliable than plastic.

    But most importantly, it holds tight and does not let go, even when I pull it. Aside from the connector problem in laptop, when I was cleaning the floor and I touched the surge protection, the cable got disconnected very easily, well worth it. :)
