LONDON, UK: Panduit has expanded its high speed data transport offering with the launch of the industry’s smallest diameter Category 6A copper cabling system.
This new TX6A-SD 10Gig UTP Copper Cabling System is part of Panduit’s range of High Speed Data Transport (HSDT) solutions, offering proven performance to ensure availability, reliability and scalability of critical systems.
Meeting industry standard requirements up to 70 metres, this Category 6A system offers a 6.1 mm cable diameter for easier cable routing and increases fill capacity by 115 per cent over industry standard limits.
This allows data centre and other customers to quickly and easily deploy a 10GBASE-T solution while reducing energy costs and increasing thermal performance in high-density environments. The superior cable management ensures proper airflow for improved network performance and availability.
Kenny Presly, UK and Ireland Area Manager at Panduit, said: “This is the latest product from Panduit to demonstrate our flexibility and innovative approach to finding reliable solutions to growing technological challenges.
“The TX6A-SD 10Gig UTP Copper Cabling System allows users to upgrade their capacity significantly without causing issues with space, reliability, performance or backwards compatibility.”
The launch is part of Panduit’s bid to provide cost-effective and seamless migration from Gigabit to 10Gigabit Ethernet. A 10GBASE-T Ecosystem with companies including Cisco and Intel was launched at Cisco Live in Barcelona to demonstrate the industry’s most complete end-to-end solution with investment protection. The demonstration incorporated the TX6A-SD 10Gig UTP Copper Cabling System.
Steve Schultz, director of marketing, Intel LAN Access Division, said: “The 10GBASE-T ecosystem solution includes industry-leading switches and cabling from companies such as Cisco and Panduit respectively, as well as a new generation of Intel adapters. 10GBASE-T’s backward compatibility with Gigabit Ethernet and solid ecosystem give customers an easy migration path to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.”
