General Cable and Panduit recently announced a new alliance and introduced PanGen structured cabling products, which are designed for a variety of infrastructure requirements. The structured cabling is available in two copper categories that have a Cat. 5e and Cat. 6 rating. The PanGen Plus is designed for the open-architecture enterprise market, and the PanGen Pro is designed for the smaller-sized business market. The companies are planning to premiere the products at the 2005 BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando at the end of January.
