Is CAT8 ethernet cable 'directional' or can you use it both ways round?

What is the application for Cat8 ? Cat 8 patch cables will be pretty much useless unless all of your other structured cabling is Cat8. No its not directional to answer the question. This is pretty much snake-oil for networking for 99.999% of users.

No it won’t make any difference whichever way round. Also will perform exactly the same as a Cat5e patch cable.
