| Compliance to CAT-6|
|Can someone please provide explanation on the following:|
I'm currently looking at a number of CAT-6 suppliers, and one of them quoted the above. No adequate info on this could be found on the Internet. I'd appreciate if anyone could enlighten me on the above compliance, thanks.

I think you can simply dismiss that statement. I have never seen any cable labeled as such. I would say that any statement above "standard compliant" can very well be put together by the marketing department, and these guys can usually come up with all sorts of reasons you should buy their cable and not the competitor's.
In any case, in view of using the cable in a structured cabling system you should only worry about compliance to (or exceeding ) TIA/EIA-568-B standard.
