Copper Cabling for High-Performance Networking


Protecting Legacy Analog Investments with IP Migration

Escalating Internet data traffic has stimulated an unprecedented transformation in the telecommunication infrastructure. Ethernet over twisted-pair copper continues as the preferred protocol and media for horizontal network cabling applications operating at distances less than 100 meters (328 ft.). It provides the advantages of plug-and-play simplicity and cost-performance benefits over alternative networks and media types.
