Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company and leading manufacturer of network infrastructure solutions, announces the release of two new Outside Plant (OSP) cables – Category 6A LANmark-10G OSP and Enhanced Category 6 LANmark-1000 OSP. With the addition of these products to its LAN portfolio, Berk-Tek can now support Category 5e through Category 6A outside plant and building-to-building copper cabling requirements.
With ever-increasing bandwidth requirements and advancing technologies, more and more outdoor applications and building-to-building interconnections are requiring higher category cabling. Berk-Tek’s new Category 6A and Enhanced Category 6 OSP cables enable network managers to extend their networks to their outdoor environments without sacrificing the bandwidth and PoE performance required for today’s emerging technologies.
The new LANmark-10G OSP is fully compliant to Category 6A standard requirements, providing reliable electrical performance under the demand of today’s data, voice, video and power applications. "LANmark-10G OSP meets Cat 6A specs for alien crosstalk, and provides excellent noise rejection and high PoE capability," says Brian Simmons, Copper Product Manager for Berk-Tek.
