The LANmark-6A cabling system is part of the Nexans Cat 6A Zero Risk Solution, based on shielded products that ensure immunity from alien crosstalk and designed to address developing 10 Gb applications. Its release follows the recent ratification of international standards for new copper class category 6A standard (500 MHz) developed to support 10 Gb applications.
The DataTuff 7940A category 6 unshielded twisted pair cable is designed for industrial ethernet applications such as mission-critical network and automation system backbones being installed in discrete industrial manufacturing, processing plants and large industrial infrastructures such as water treatment and utility plants, airports, transportation terminals and shipyards.
The CopperTen 3-port Faceplate has been specifically designed to meet the performance requirements of 10 Gb ethernet applications, by spacing the outlets sufficiently distant from each other to minimise the impact of alien crosstalk at the outlet.
The Banner Engineering DX99 wireless transceiver node is designed for installation in hazardous areas and combines three technologies in a single housing: battery-based power supply, wireless technology for mission critical data and intrinsically safe operation.
The PowerCat 6A shielded solution is designed to fully support 10 Gb ethernet/10G Base-T/IEEE 802.3an while being backwards compatible for 10 Base-T, 100 Base-T and 1000 Base-T. The system is claimed to offer improved alien crosstalk mitigation and insertion loss over unshielded systems.
The ISN T8-Cat 6 impedance stabilisation network (ISN) from Teseise (formerly Schaffner Test Systems) is designed for measurements on up to four unshielded single balanced pairs of category 6 cables.
The LockIT data outlet lock is a network accessory that protects an RJ45 outlet from the insertion of a patch cord or foreign object, providing physical security by preventing unauthorised or accidental connections and disconnections within a cabling system.
Opengear console servers are now configured to incorporate power management software enabling data centre power infrastructure (PDU, UPS and IPMI power devices) from major vendors (including Powerware, MGE, TrippLite, Baytech and APC) to be managed.
Telstra's non-compliant bid for the National Broadband Network raises plenty of questions about their strategy for this massive project. Telco industry analyst Ovum presents its opinion on what's behind the bid.
The ST series of slotted PVC duct is designed for the routing and concealing of cables in a wide range of installation situations including control panels and wire management for voice and data cabling in workstations and communications cabinets.
