It's interesting to see them making a case for 10GbE over copper,
shielded or not, given that so few switches offer 10GbE RJ45 ports.
I've found exactly one, at $20K USD:

Everything else uses SPF ports for 10GbE.

Camaleón, you'll be hard pressed to win this debate of shielded vs
unshielded TP cable.  Why not simply say you're happy with it and it
works for you.  Because the bulk of the Western world used UTP
exclusively.  And number don't lie.  We invented both types here in the
US.  And we only use UTP.  If not UTP, we use fiber.  That should be
informative, instructive.

Nobody has said you are wrong in any way for using STP, F/UTP.  We
simply said it's unnecessary if the cable plant is installed correctly.
 You already stated that cable installers there are less than properly

I don't understand why you're being so defensive about this shielded
cable thing.  I've never seen you act this way in a thread.  I'm left
assuming that you personally selected S/F/UTP and did the install
yourself, thus the defensive stance.

If that's the case, simply say so, and we can move on.
