Hitachi Cable Manchester (HCM) has announced that Underwriters Laboratories Inc. has verified its Supra 10G cable.

Available in riser rated, plenum rated and low-smoke zero halogen versions, the cable has tested to Draft 5 of TIA/EIA 568-B.2-10 (Category 6A) and according to the company, is the world’s “first fully verified Category 6A cable.

The splined-jacket construction allows it to exceed all alien crosstalk requirements. Unlike Category 6 cable, which is tested to 250 MHz, Category 6A cable will be tested to 500 MHz.

Alien crosstalk, when signal from one cable jumps to an adjacent cable, is a significant factor in the performance of a 10-gigabit cable.
