January 30, 2007 -- CommScope says its Residential Cabling Distribution Center is designed to enable simultaneous distribution of high-speed data, voice and video signals throughout homes, multi-family dwellings or small commercial buildings.
January 30, 2007 -- As the latest addition to its Uniprise Residential Network Solutions product portfolio, CommScope, Inc. (www.commscope.com) has introduced its Residential Cabling Distribution Center, a platform designed to provide simultaneous distribution of high-speed data, voice and video signals throughout homes, multi-family dwellings or small commercial buildings.
According to the company, the platform supports a fully incorporated applications environment for current and emerging communication and video entertainment. Data, voice and video signals converge in the residential cabling distribution center and are then distributed to individual room outlets, allowing cable, satellite, PCs, printers and fax machines to work in concert using a single sophisticated system.
The cabling distribution center supports both basic and enhanced systems. The basic system is pre-designed for voice and data applications, while the enhanced system provides flexibility for removing modules and allows plug-and-play simplicity for both copper and fiber applications
In addition, an eight-port switch gives users the ability to network up to seven computers. Other features include complete automation capabilities and central control of multiple integrated home communication and video entertainment applications, including telephone, video, data, CATV, Satellite, audio distribution, HDTV, cable modem and security systems.
The multimedia system supports Cat 5e, Cat 6 and fiber connectivity while meeting EIA/TIA 60 CEBus and the TIA/EIA 570-B Residential Wiring Standard. The fiber-based system accepts most connector types (SC, ST and LC) and is upgradeable with flexible patch panel modularity. Added security is available via an optional locking kit.
"Combining our advanced engineering with a structured cabling approach that supports virtually all standards and vendor-independent applications, people can now experience the same networking abilities at home that they use in their offices," comments Mark Peterson, senior vice president of enterprise global marketing at CommScope.
