Mohawk, a division of Belden CDT, today released 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 meters.

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.

“GigaLAN 10 cables utilize Mohawk’s FlexWeb technology which isolates the cable pairs and has outstanding pair-to-pair balance for superior headroom,” said Greg Niemiera, manager of technical sales and marketing with Mohawk.

“This product also incorporates a unique jacket design for reduced alien crosstalk. Alien crosstalk is the main concern with 10 Gigabit Ethernet copper cable performance.”
