    Hello,

    I recently bought 1000ft of shielded cat6 because the wiring will need to be ran close to high interference areas. I'm still in the process of ordering keystones and connectors for the cabling, and I am wondering if I need to buy the shielded version of both. From what I understand, I need to terminate one end of the cables, and in my case I could ground the wires at the switch, so I'd need to buy the shielded connectors, but I might not needed shielded keystones. Here are the products I'm looking at possibly purchasing:

    Shielded Connectors:

    Since I'm grounding at the switch, can I buy these keystones and save some money?
