UL verifies GameChanger cable’s 200-meter 1-Gig, PoE Plus capability
Underwriters Laboratories evaluated Paige Datacom’s GameChanger as part of its Marketing Claim Verification program.
Paige DataCom Solutions recently announced positive results from UL’s independent performance evaluation of Paige’s GameChanger cable. “The UL assessment evaluated the performance of the award-winning GameChanger cable technology, and verifies the claim that it delivers 1-Gbit/sec performance and PoE Plus over 200 meters,” Paige announced. The company added that GameChanger is “designed to significantly exceed the reach of traditional category cable.”
David Coleman, vice president of business development for Paige Electric Co., LP, said, “We are thrilled that the leading independent testing facility verifies that GameChanger delivers this type of performance at over twice the standard cable length. These results independently document that Paige’s GameChanger cable really lives up to its name. With a reach that far exceeds traditional cable, it can save integrators and end-users an enormous amount of time, money and hassle across many different applications.”
The GameChanger cable “extends the reach for any Ethernet application including high-definition video and PoE Plus to 850 feet without a repeater, making it ideal for replacing CCTV and for use in applications that are beyond the 100-meter reach of a traditional category cable,” the company said. “This cable eliminates IDF [intermediate distribution frame] requirements and the need to install repeaters or transceivers, which are costly and introduce additional points of failure.”
