Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company, recently introduced the LANmark -6, a redesigned Cat 6 UTP cable in which the spline has been eliminated in order to make it lighter, smaller and easier to install, yet still provide industry standard requirements for Cat 6 cable.

A key design factor is the cable’s diameter. It has been reduced to 0.195-inches, bringing it closer to the diameter of a Cat 5e cable, which is typically 0.180-inches.

Berk-Tek says it developed LANmark -6 to vie for installations that currently specify Cat 5e, while providing more headroom and an increased bandwidth from 100 MHz to 250 MHz.

The cable does not replace the LANmark 1000 or LANmark 2000, Berk-Tek’s higher performing Cat 6 cables, both of which contain a spline.
