Hitachi Cable America presents the new and improved white paper titled "Interpreting Cable Test Data."
The myriad of manufacturers in the cabling industry offer you many solutions- but often also present to you a problem. Manufacturers typically use different terms to describe the performance capabilities of their cables. With a multitude of terms used by each manufacturer, how can you compare them? And therefore, how can you determine which cable bets fits your needs? Hitachi Cable America set out to sort through the terms used throughout the industry to make sense of them for you, the contractor, in this white paper.
In this post we have provided you with a short preview of the updated white paper, below:
Selecting the appropriate communication cable for a project can be challenging. Whether you are a consultant designing an infrastructure for a major customer or an IT professional who is tasked with turning a large open area into a cubicle farm, choosing the best cable for the project can be daunting. One factor that can make it even more challenging is the manner in which some companies provide the performance data for their cables. Terms like “Average”, “Typical”, “Max” and “Guaranteed” are being used by different manufacturers to describe their cable’s performance. Which term or terms most accurately depict the cable’s performance and, more importantly, the company’s obligation to that performance?
This document will attempt to shed light on some of the confusing terminology used in the cable industry and will hopefully make readers better informed when choosing cable for their next project.
In this white paper, Hitachi will answer questions like, "What are the cables tested to?" "What should I look at when comparing cables?" "Does the cable's maximum test frequency matter?" and more.
