Mohawk, a manufacturer of fiber optic and copper cable products, has introduced GigaLAN 10 to deliver 10 GbE to the desktop to meet increasing bandwidth requirements for evolving applications, such as enterprise data centers.

GigaLAN 10 meets the proposed Augmented Category 6 New Class E specifications, which will become TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10, to support the operation of 10GBase-T over 100 metres.

Transmission will employ full-duplex (transmitting and receiving simultaneously) over all four-pairs for a data rate of 2.5 Gb/s per twisted pair and extend the frequency characterization of existing Category 6 cabling requirements to 500 MHz.

The product also incorporates a unique jacket design for reduced alien crosstalk.
