Corning Cable Systems expands 10G-ready FutureCom copper system

August 13, 2008 -- Corning Cable Systems announced that its FutureCom 10TENe System exceeds international ISO/IEC 11801:2002 Amd1:2008 and American ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10-CAT6A system standards requirements.

August 13, 2008 -- Corning Cable Systems announced that its FutureCom 10TENe System exceeds international ISO/IEC 11801:2002 Amd1:2008 and American ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10-CAT6A system standards requirements. The system is the newest addition to the company's high-performance FutureCom line, and has been specifically developed to support 10 Gbit/sec applications over 100 metres, making it ideal for data center environments.

The FutureCom10TENe System is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3an and the recently released new EA class. Moreover, the system is suitable for Power over Ethernet and PoE Plus applications. The system's immunity to alien near-end and far-end cross talk ensures network security and an investment in the future, maintains the company. This feature also facilitates upgrades to higher classes and future applications without the need to replace backbone cables. The cabling system is designed for optimal electrical characteristics at minimum diameter and weight, addressing the crucial space and cooling issues of data centers.

The FutureCom S10TENe Module has received the GHMT Premium certification from the accredited test lab for cabling and connection components, GHMT. The module is suitable for data centers and LANs due to its robustness, ease of installation and handling, says Corning. The die-cast housing provides 360-degree protection, and the secured dust protection lid shields unused ports in harsh environments. A three-component architecture, intuitive wire management system and integrated cable strain relief makes installation of the module simple and fast. IDC [insulation displacement connector] technology allows for fast and easy termination without special tooling or wire preparation.
