It is used in extending existing USB 3.0 lines (or USB 2.0 lines since this cable is backwards compatible. When used in a USB 2.0 line, it will only pass the data rates specific to the USB 2.0 spec).

- Data Transfer Speeds up to 5 Gbps

This cable is recommended for data transfer applications where high speed and distance are both needed. Other applications include extending webcams further from the host computer, and extending peripherals such as printers, mice, keyboards, and other devices far away from a computer. This is common in places like sound rooms where low noise is important and the computer is moved to another room.
