What is the length of a ScUTP and TERA cable run?

Learn what the length of a ScUTP cable run and TERA cable run is in this response from our network infrastructure expert on standards-based runs.

Due to their shield, what is the length for a ScUTP cable run, and what is the length of a TERA cable run? Is it still 295 feet, or is it higher?
The maximum distance for any copper (as per the standards) is 100 meters. Although, due to the heartiness of a TERA cable, some users are seeing much longer lengths perform without errors. It is important to note, however, that if your runs are longer than the standards-based 100 meters (total length) and you do have errors, your active electronics manufacturer will likely suggest an intermediate switch or a repeater to get you back into the standards-based lengths.
