NORDX/CDT has introduced two structured systems that can handle gigabit transmission. The ibdn Gigabit Cabling Solution System 1200 and System 2400 include cable and connecting hardware manufactured by NORDX/CDT. The System 1200 is built using PS5 connectivity hardware--which includes patch panels and workstation outlets--and the company`s ibdn 1200 series unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable. According to the manufacturer, the 1200 system delivers a higher signal-to-noise ratio than do conventional Category 5 systems, provides a system bandwidth of 160 megahertz, and features an information bit-rate capability of 1.2 gigabits per second. The System 2400, which includes PS5 connectivity products and ibdn 2400 series utp cable, delivers 200 MHz of system bandwidth. The system can deliver an information bit rate of 2.4 Gbits/sec. The System 1200 is now available; the System 2400 will be available in March.
