568-C.2 verification for Hitachi's Cat 5e, 6 and 6A cables

Jan. 7, 2011
HCM and UL say the set of cables is the world's first to attain the verification.

Hitachi Cable Manchester and Underwriters Laboratories jointly announced that HCM's Category 5e, 6 and 6A copper cables are the first that UL has verified to TIA 568-C.2 specifications. "The verification demonstrates that the cables meet the performance requirements of the TIA standard," the announcement said.

"End users installing cables with UL verification can be confident their infrastructure will support any and all applications intended for that category of cable," the announcement continued. "The 568-C family of standards is replacing the 568-B family, which was released in 2001, as well as all subsequent addenda."
