| Cables in a budle|
|Running 24 Cat6 cables is common place to address a 24 port patch panel.|
With Augmented Category 6 (Cat6A)alien crosstalk is a big issue.When lab tests are carried out the test is conducted whereby a 6 around 1 configuration is applied so as to measure the cross talk on the inner victim cable.
Does this then mean that you can only bundle up to a max of seven cables instead of 24 for cat6

No it does not mean that at all. This was a configuration to show the effects of alien cross talk.
The best installation practice for multiple runs of cable is to have them random lay together and do not comb them to make it look pretty.
