Superior Essex and Leviton Network Solutions jointly have announced today the introduction of NextLAN 10GC AXi, the companies’ second generation copper cabling system for 10 Gigabit Ethernet transmission.

 

The UTP cabling system delivers 4 dB performance margin for channel Power Sum Alien Crosstalk by using a round cable design with an outside diameter of only 0.30 inches.

 

In addition, the system eliminates the need for costly Alien Crosstalk field testing while improving space utilization in horizontal and vertical pathways.

 

NextLAN 10GC AXi incorporates several technological advances, patented as well as patent-pending, from Leviton and Superior Essex, joint developers of the NextLAN cabling System.

 

The cable complies with TIA 568-B.2-10 and UL 444 requirements for an unshielded twisted pair cable product and meets National Electrical Code requirements for cable products that do not require grounding/bonding.

 

The 10GC AXi system utilizes Leviton’s CAT6A connectivity, which incorporates several new advanced technology designs. These include the eXtreme 10G connector, which utilizes a new patented metalized Cone of Silence to reduce Alien Crosstalk.
