Panduit has announced that its TX6 10GIG copper cabling system is compliant with the newly approved IEEE 802.3an-2006 10GBASE-T standard specified for 10GigE operation over copper twisted pair cabling up to 100 metres.
The company first received third-party certification of the TX6 to the 802.3an draft standard in mid-2005 from testing organization Intertek ETL Semko.
Testing was performed on bundled product in a 6 around 1 configuration in a 100 meter, 4-connector channel.
Components in the channel configuration included the TX6 10GIG Copper Cable, TX6 10GIG Jack Modules, TX6 10GIG Patch Cords and a DP6 10GIG Modular Patch Panel.
“Now that the 10GBASE-T standard is ratified, customers can have confidence that the technology is stable,” said Mike Doorhy, product line manager at Panduit.
