Redesigned 10Gain XP Cable by Superior Essex
By Stephanie Lai
July 2, 2013 – Superior Essex Communications has redesigned the 10Gain XP Category 6A Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables with a nominal diameter of 0.275 in. The redesigned 10Gain XP cable offers customers a smaller cable size that allows for higher cable density in conduits, pathways, and shelves. In addition, the smaller form-factor of the cable claims to make deployment easier. Each cable is constructed non-conducting isolation wrap around the core that blocks Alien Crosstalk (AXT), which is electromagnetic interference from adjacent cables. The Superior Essex 10Gain XP CAT 6A cables are also part of the NextLAN AXi cabling system that offers 4 dB of AXT margin over ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 requirements.
