Copper and fiber optic cabling manufacturer Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company, has announced improvements in design and manufacturing of its LANmark-1000 Cat 6 UTP cable.

The firm has increased all crosstalk parameters by 4 dB over the old design, which it says was already exceeding component performance as specified by TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1 Cat 6.

The improved LANmark-1000 is a result of both the re-engineering of the cable core design combined with investment in manufacturing equipment and new processes at Berk-Tek’s New Holland, Pa, facility.

Included in across-the-board crosstalk performance is an 85% improvement in the PS-ACR. That means much more signal integrity and strength, which greatly reduces vulnerability to noise interference.
