Mohawk (www.Mohawk-cable.com) recently released GigaLAN 10, an unshielded twisted-pair cable designed to support 100 meters of 10GBase-T transmission. Mohawk says the cable meets the proposed Augmented Category 6 specifications, which will become standardized in TIA/EIA-568B.2-10.
"GigaLAN 10 cables utilize Mohawk's proven FlexWeb technology, which isolates the cable pairs and has outstanding pair-to-pair balance for superior headroom," says Greg Niemiera, RCDD, manager of technical sales and marketing for Mohawk. "This product also incorporates a unique jacket design for reduced alien crosstalk. Alien crosstalk is the main concern with 10 Gigabit Ethernet copper cable performance," he adds.
