I'm educating myself on how to terminate Cat 6a cables. I've seen some articles talk about "grounding" requirements because of the "shielding" in the cables. But is grounding a concern if I'm just connecting two devices directly?
If I have a spool of Cat6a cable and I crimp on my own RJ45 shielded connectors, and then I use this cable to connect a router and a switch (for example), do I need to care about grounding? I'm not going through a wall jack. The two devices would be connected directly together.
Apologies if I'm misusing terminology and making this question unclear or confusing.
