November 8, 2007 -- ADC has introduced its TrueNet IP Security Catalog, an integrated portfolio of high-performance copper and fiber cable, connectivity and cable management products that are part of the company's TrueNet structured cabling system.
The company maintains that the TrueNet system "was designed with network security in mind." According to the company, the system exceeds both Telecommunication Industry Association (TIA) and Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) standards, and provides a clear path for uninterrupted IP data and video throughput within the entire network. The system incorporates products for fiber cabling, 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) over unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling, and Category 6 and 5e Ethernet media from the data center to remote IP security devices.
Specifically, ADC TrueNet platforms featured in the catalog include:
-- Augmented Category 6 products: The company's patented CopperTen Solution is a complete Cat 6a system to meet the IEEE requirements for 10-GbE over 100 meters to the UTP cable.
-- Category 6 and 5e Ethernet: The company's TrueNet Category 6 and 5e patch panels, patch cords and cable are impedance matched to deliver extra bandwidth and better attenuation with zero bit errors.
-- Coax video products: The company's BNC video panels and connectors offer superior video performance.
-- Copper cables: The company's high-performance riser and plenum cable supports backbone and horizontal applications. The TrueNet copper cables feature ADC's patented AirES technology to enhance signal speed and strength while minimizing cable size and crosstalk.
-- Fiber cables: Options for fiber cables include interlocked armored versions, plenum-rated, dry loose tube, small diameter indoor/outdoor cables, singlemode reduced water peak, and standard or laser optimized multimode configurations.
-- Fiber connectivity: For use "in the backbone" or "to the desk," the company's optical network products include high density frames, fiber connectors, patch cords, raceways and panels featuring integrated cable management and bend radius protection.
-- Outdoor cabling: The company's outback cable, available as Category 6 and Category 5e products, is designed for outdoor use, suitable for providing IP video to outdoor security cameras.
"As organizations continue to add new security measures from badge scanners to video surveillance, they also increase the amount of information running over their networks," comments Jaxon Lang, vice president of product management, structured cabling. for ADC. "ADC's new catalog showcases the ability of our TrueNet solutions to help enterprises push their networks to the performance edge."
