Siemon announces 10Gbps copper cabling systems

Keywords:Siemon  TERA7  10G 6A F/UTP  cable system 

Siemon offers Category 7 TERA and 10G 6A F/UTP end-to-end 10Gbps copper cabling systems with integrated grounding features to meet the TIA standards for 10Gbps copper network cabling.

Touting designs to simplify grounding, which is required for proper performance of screened and shielded copper network cabling, Siemon has developed a line of Quick-Ground connectors and patch panels for both its fully shielded category 7/class F TERA and screened category 6A 10G 6A F/UTP systems.

The performance requirements dictated by the TIA standards for 10Gbps copper network cabling, specifically those surrounding the control of alien crosstalk, have increased interest in screened and shielded cabling, said the company, and unlike category 6A UTP cables, which control alien crosstalk through larger cable diameters and the resulting increase in conductor separation, screened and shielded cables eliminate crosstalk by encasing pairs in metal foil, either with an overall foil (F/UTP) or individually foil-wrapped pairs and overall braided shield (S/FTP).

As part of Siemon's tool-less termination features, both TERA and 10G 6A F/UTP MAX outlets automatically terminate the shield or screen of their respective S/FTP and F/UTP cable, providing ground continuity to the outlet body. In addition, the TERA-MAX patch panel provides additional, integrated ground continuity in the telecommunications room or data centre.

The TERA or 10G 6A F/UTP modules are snapped into TERA-MAX panels, and are automatically connected to a ground point without additional steps as long as the grounding and bonding standards have been followed, said the company. All that is required to complete the ground is a 6-gauge wire connection from the provided ground lug to the equipment rack.

In addition, the grounding of the cabling plant for both the TERA and 10G 6A F/UTP takes about the same time to install as a category 6A UTP system.
