General Cable has released two new copper cable options designed to deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet performance over distances of up to 100 meters.

GenSPEED 7000 S/STP is a Category 7 cable that contains four individually shielded copper pairs as well as an overall braid. This design provides EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference) immunity as well as 65% crosstalk improvement over standard Category 6 cables.

The individually shielded copper pairs in General Cable’s GenSPEED 6500 STP Category 6 cable also provide EMI and RFI immunity.

“This is especially important in environments with electromagnetic and RF sources such as electrical power wiring and transformers,” the company said.

“Both GenSPEED 7000 S/STP and GenSPEED 6500 STP exceed the alien crosstalk requirements in IEEE802.3an and are tested to 600 MHz for the capability of supporting 10 Gigabit Ethernet per the IEEE draft with distances of up to 100 meters.”

Headquartered in Highland Heights, Ky., General Cable develops, designs and, manufactures copper, aluminum and fiber optic wire and cable products for the communications, energy, industrial and specialty markets.
