This 24 port 1U Blank Shielded patch panels is an excellent solution as it lets you have the option of inserting Cat6 shielded or Cat6a shielded jacks.
In networks you’re only as good as your weakest link. If you’re using cat6 or cat6a shielded patch cables you must follow it right to the
patch panel and continue the shielded chain.
This is especially important for those setting up networks to run up to 10GB.
When you get to the higher speeds interference can become a problem and shielded would be the best solution.
You can still achieve that speed with cat6a non shielded but be careful not to bundle cables together as your network could pick up
interference from one cable to non shielded cat6a patch cable to another.
That is less of a concern when you use only shielded cat6 or cat6a components.
