The program's third-party judging panel included distinguished cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators, and managers with vast professional experience. The awards were presented at the BICSI Fall Conference 2022 (Sep. 25-29). Leviton was recognized with two Gold Level Cabling Innovators awards.

Gold Cabling Innovators product profile
Leviton's VXC Coupler and Plenum Assemblies products create a cost-effective method for terminating cables for wireless access points, video cameras, and other ceiling mounted devices. This Cat 6A rated assembly includes a VXC Coupler (also sold separately) that creates a durable connection without the need for punchdown or other proprietary tools. The assembly also includes a standard size plug and flexible stranded patch cable. The VXC Assembly is plenum-rated and can be used in riser and plenum applications.
For its part, to help installers, Leviton's engineers developed FLX-1, an advanced polymer technology built into the cable jacket of select Berk-Tek plenum cables that improves flexibility, making cables easier to bend, less likely to kink, and less susceptible to installation stress. FLX-1 is available with LANmark-SST Cat 6A UTP cable, reduced diameter LM-RDT Cat 6A UTP Cable, and LANmark-1000 Cat 6 UTP Cable.
