Unified Storage System 7110 - included cabling is CAT5e?

This is a mere curiosity question....we just received our new 7110 and I noticed that the included patch cabling, while beefy and well made, is Cat5e, not Cat6.

My guess is that Sun intentionally shipped it this way, I just can't figure out why.

It would seem, that on a core workgroup SAN device, you would like to have Cat6 over GigE connections.

Can anyone comment on this?

Thanks,
Phil
