Maximum console cable length with UTP CAT 6A

Hello,

I would appreciate any advice on what is the maximum length of a console cable connecting a Terminal Server and a router, being that the cable is built with UTP CAT 6A and RJ45 connectors. Would a 30m cable work?

Many thanks in advance.

I have seen cables upwards of 300m at slow speeds.  It depends on the cable and the quality of the transciever at the receiving end.  I suspect 30m will work flawlessly.
