October 12, 2006 -- CommScope has introduced its Uniprise Foiled Twisted Pair (FTP) Solution, a comprehensive product set that includes Category 6 and 5e cabling, patch cords, modular patch panels and information outlets. Each of these components is designed to meet the specifications set forth in TIA/EIA, IEC 60603, and ISO/IEC 11801 standards. The company says it developed the platform to address the cabling preferences of customers in specific markets including automotive, industrial, and the Federal government.
"At CommScope, we know there are a number of applications in several industries that benefit from an FTP solution, and we're dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers," comments Mark Peterson, senior vice president, global marketing, enterprise, at CommScope. "We wanted to provide a range of specified solutions from a single source that would enable users to satisfy their UTP, FTP, fiber, or coax cabling requirements."
The Uniprise products are designed to certain specifications for use in high-noise environments where electromagnetic devices could impair the network. The FTP platform's plug-and-play design facilitates easy interconnection without the use of special tools. The company says the platform offers end-to-end channel performance and is tested and verified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the product testing, safety and certification organization.
With a 1RU form factor, the Uniprise FTP modular panel accommodates 24 FTP information outlets, allowing for simple termination of 4-pair FTP cables. The information outlets are designed to snap easily into standard faceplates, surface-mount boxes, and consolidation point boxes. The design is also backward-compatible with lower category cords and cables. All components create an FTP platform that offers excellent performance for Category 6 and 5e applications, says the company.
The Uniprise FTP Solution is now available in North America.
