Are the R7000 Ethernet jacks compatible with S/STP Cat6 type

I want to use shielded Cat6 cable (S/STP) with my new R7000 router. Does this router use shielded Cat6 type Ethernet jacks..........or will I need to do something to make sure the shield/ground is effectively coupled...?

Thank you.

Hi,
Of course. I used CAT6 and CAT7 cables. They are just little heavy, same connectors.

Thank you VE6C6X. Since my router is "tucked away" I can't access the back to take a look.....The pictures of the jacks via the product description page sure don't look like they're metal, so I was concerned that they aren't shielded.
