ADC today announced it has reduced the size of its CopperTen Augmented Category 6 UTP cable.

The new cable, which is being demonstrated this week at the 2007 BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando, Fla., has an average outside diameter of .275-inches compared to the industry average of .310-inches.

According to ADC, that translates into a 22% reduction in cross-sectional area compared to typical Augmented Category 6 cable.

The company says benefits of implementing a smaller cable include:

* Enhanced airflow for improved data centre cooling, reliability and uptime.

* Reduced installation costs due to its lighter weight and smaller volume.

* Improved fill rates in cable trays, conduits and raceways.
