As a leading manufacturer and sustainable supplier of communications cable, Superior Essex Communications sits at the forefront of innovation. Throughout their 90-year history, they have honed future-forward optical fiber and copper and hybrid solutions to meet any Premises, Outside Plant (OSP), and Wireless cabling needs. Their cables enhance Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) applications, Sustainable Intelligent Buildings, broadband, and 5G infrastructure.
As the industry's first certified Zero Waste to Landfill cable manufacturer, and the first to offer Environmental and Health Product Declarations (EPDs and HPDs) that contribute points to LEED certification, Superior Essex empowers sustainability-focused projects. Their complete portfolio of more than 5,000 high-performance cabling products interconnect enterprises, campuses, and communities worldwide.
Sustainable innovations will make technologies of the future work better while preserving the earth on which we live. Superior Essex lives up to its commitment to industry-leading environmental stewardship and product transparency by sustainably manufacturing high-performing, sustainable communications cables. More than 55 of their cables feature Environmental and Health Product Declarations (EPDs and HPDs) that contribute points to LEED certification.
They believe that technology that connects the world should also respect the world. Their premises copper cabling products exceed performance requirements, transmit data further, and reduce the long-term impact on the people in your building and the environment around it.
The ways we connect to the world around us are rapidly changing. 5G and Broadband technologies are already revolutionizing communications as we know it, and in the very near future, how our smart devices wirelessly communicate with each other will be drastically different. And what’s quietly powering and enabling this evolution in data and communications are pioneering cable technologies from Superior Essex.
As wireless devices, networks, and data become more popular and in-demand, cabling must be able to keep up with the expanding reach. Superior Essex has revolutionized broadband infrastructure by providing both DC power (via copper) and data (via optical fiber) via one cable. With their cables, the 5G and broadband networks can go where they’re needed, to the people who need them.
Our PowerWise products are first-class PoE cables that deliver data and power to low-voltage devices. Superior Essex has a line of PoE cables for both broadband and premises networks, allowing you to optimize, customize and connect your environment in order to meet the unique demands of your project. With PowerWise from Superior Essex, you’ll be able to empower your sustainable intelligent building into the future.
Superior Essex is pushing the capabilities of premises copper technologies with their 10Gain XP+ Category 6A cables. Not only can they deliver incredible data transmission and power, but they come with guaranteed performance. The unique proprietary wrap gives the cable industry-leading +15 dB alien crosstalk headroom and an internal separator reduces internal crosstalk, so the signal that reaches the device remains strong.
Fiber optic cable is a versatile tool for data centers and Superior Essex produces a variety of cable types for any premises need. They offer single-mode fiber cables, multi-mode fiber cables and patch cords in loose tube, indoor/outdoor, and aramid yarn designs. Most of their cables can be manufactured to meet the number of fibers the job needs or may need in the future
As the telecommunications grid continues to evolve to meet broadband internet needs, it demands innovative solutions to grow sustainably. Superior Essex has combined the data delivery of fiber with the electrical carrying capacity of copper to create a hybrid cable that distributes the telecommunications power grid to new frontiers.
These cables also contribute to sustainable development. By using their OSP Hybrid cables, you reduce the materials needed for your current broadband project, thereby diminishing its impact on the planet and its people.
Our world is growing thanks to wireless connectivity, especially the 5G network. This network mesh coverage allows more people to access the information superhighway from mobile devices, but that means the network infrastructure needs more support. Superior Essex Communications makes quality, high-performing cable that enhances wireless coverage, capability and reliability.
Superior Essex strives to help everyone connect to the wireless network, inside and outside. Distributed Antenna System (DAS) provides added coverage and capacity within a structure, and their cables create the all-encompassing wireless network throughout your built environment. For the 5G network, they create cables the power small cells and increase signal strength to users nearby.
Superior Essex lives up to its firm commitment of industry-leading environmental stewardship and product transparency by sustainably manufacturing innovative, high-performing, sustainable communications cables. They produce the most sustainable communications cable products available in the marketplace – remaining sustainable both in product and process by remaining mindful of our raw materials, manufacturing, transportation, installation and end of life practices – because they firmly believe that the technology that interconnects the world should also respect it.
They manufacture our sustainable cables in the industry’s first and only Zero Waste to Landfill facility. Since 2014, they've reduced our waste and diverted what is produced from landfills as the cornerstone of our sustainability efforts. They also seek out energy reduction measures at all our facilities as well as using renewable energy sources when possible.
Superior Essex manufactures more than 55 cable families that contribute to green building certifications like LEED, WELL and CaGBC. Because of the sustainable processes used to manufacture these cables and the materials they choose, their cables reduce the long-term impact on the people in your building and the environment around it.
They continue to take steps to reduce the embodied carbon in 30 cable families and offset carbon emissions from manufacturing. Their sustainable cables come with Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations (EPDs), and Red List Free Labels for transparency measures. Superior Essex aims to help everyone in the telecommunications industry create more sustainable built environments.
