- Exceptional Performance Makes it the Solution of Choice for Data Centres

Corning Cable Systems LLC, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, announces that its FutureCom(TM) 10TENe System exceeds international ISO/IEC 11801:2002 Amd1:2008 and American ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10-CAT6A system standards requirements.

Corning Cable Systems FutureCom 10TENe System is the newest addition to the high-performance FutureCom solutions and has been specifically developed to support 10Gbit/s applications over 100 metres, making the solution ideal for data centre environments. The FutureCom10TENe System is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3an and the recently released new EA class. Moreover, the system is suitable for Power over Ethernet and PoE Plus applications.

The FutureCom 10TENe System's high-quality level of performance, alongside its immunity to alien near-end and far-end cross talk, ensures network security and an investment in the future. This also facilitates upgrades to higher classes and future applications without the need to replace backbone cables. The cabling system is designed for optimal electrical characteristics at minimum diameter and weight, addressing the crucial space and cooling issues of data centres.

The FutureCom S10TENe Module has received the GHMT Premium certification from the accredited test lab for cabling and connection components, GHMT. The module becomes the preferred choice for data centres and LANs due to its robustness, ease of installation and handling. The die-cast housing provides 360-degree protection, and the secured dust protection lid shields unused ports in harsh environments. The innovative three-component architecture, the intuitive wire management system and the integrated cable strain relief makes installation simpler and faster. The IDC (insulation displacement connector) technology allows for fast and easy termination without special tooling or wire preparation.
