Structured cabling doubles Cat. 6 performance

The GigaBand system of structured cabling products doubles the bandwidth of the proposed Cat. 6 standard. Tested to perform with positive Power Sum ACR up to 400 MHz, GigaBand consists of jacks, patch panels and patch cords. The system offers backward compatibility and can be used with Cat. 5 and Cat. 5e systems. Part of the system's performance is due to the implementation of an innovative, crosstalk cancellation technology. The jacks also feature a unique design offering strain relief for the cable.
