Corning unveils shielded Cat 6A RJ-45 module

December 11, 2008--Corning Cable Systems' FutureCom S500 RJ45 module is a fully-shielded Category 6A copper module, and certified as per approved TIA Standard 2008-04, Augmented Category 6, ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 Component Standard, by GHMT---an accredited, independent test lab for cabling and connection components.

December 11, 2008--Corning Cable Systems' FutureCom S500 RJ45 module is a fully-shielded Category 6A copper module, and certified as per approved TIA Standard 2008-04, Augmented Category 6, ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 Component Standard, by GHMT--an accredited, independent test lab for cabling and connection components.

The FutureCom S500 module is part of the new FutureCom EA system, the latest addition to Corning's 10 Gbit/sec Ethernet copper cabling systems family. The system offers high network performance and security with alien cross talk protection that is compliant with the Categor 6A requirements. It also supports Power over Ethernet and Power over Ethernet Plus.

The module's die-cast housing provides 360-degree shielding and protection, and its secured, dust-protection lid covers unused ports. Installation is simplified by a three-piece design and an intuitive wire management system. In installation environments where space is a concern, the module's 0-degree and 90-degree cable entries allow for simplified installation. In addition to the established modular footprint, an alternative keystone footprint provides installation compatibility with a wide range of hardware options, from outlets to panels.

The insulation displacement connector (IDC) technology allows for fast termination without special tooling or wire preparation. The module comes in a dark blue insert (RAL 5017), which allows simplified differentiation to lower performing modules in existing installations.
