CommScope adds lower-priced Cat 6 cable

Dec. 6, 2001
December 6, 2001 Media 6 is the third Cat-6 product from the cable maker.

CommScope, Inc. ( has added a new Category 6 twisted pair cable called Media 6 to its family of Category 6 cables.

The new cable is the company's third Category 6 product, joining UltraMedia and UltraPipe. Media 6 is priced lower than the other products. It does not reach their enhanced performance levels, but still is compliant with the Category 6 standards set by the EIA/TIA.

The Media 6 twisted pair cable is designed to meet Category 6 specifications to support broadband video and high-speed, full duplex transmission protocols that new and emerging technologies demand. Its features include a flexible jacket, thousand-to-zero footage markers, coextruded colorstripe pairs for easy identification and a smaller outer diameter than typical Category 6 products.

"Media 6 rounds out our family of Category 6 twisted pair cables," said Randy Crenshaw, executive vice president, Network Products Group. "Now we offer our customers a broader line of Cat 6 cables to meet virtually all budget requirements."

CommScope, based in Hickory, N.C., is a manufacturer of broadband coaxial cable for Hybrid Fiber Coaxial (HFC) applications and a supplier of optical fiber and twisted-pair cables for LAN, wireless and other communication applications.
