The Krone Group has introduced what it calls the world’s first augmented Cat 6 system with the ability to enable 10Gbps Ethernet transmission over a full 100 metres.

The suite of cable and connector products is called CooperTen, and is the result of new Krone technology announced late last year at the IEEE conference in Albuquerque, N.M.

According to the company, UTP systems are easier to install and typically more economical than shielded or fiber optic-based networks. However, at higher frequencies they are hindered by insertion loss and alien crosstalk.

CopperTen incorporates patent-pending design and manufacturing processes that enable the products to overcome these challenges.
