Atlanta, GA – October 22, 2015 

Superior Essex, a leading supplier of communications cabling solutions, announces its membership with the HDBaseT Alliance, an organization which promotes and standardizes HDBaseT™ technology for whole-home and commercial distribution of uncompressed High-Definition (HD) multimedia. With this membership, HDBaseT Alliance certifies the 10Gain® XP CAT 6A CMR/CMP twisted pair copper cable products from Superior Essex as approved power and data solutions for HD audio and video applications. This certification allows 10Gain XP twisted-pair copper cable infrastructure to be used in HD A/V applications in home and enterprise spaces, where communications cabling is prevalent and interoperability between communications cables and HD A/V is critical. 

10Gain XP Cable

10Gain XP, the premium CAT 6A cable available from Superior Essex, is the premier CAT 6A cabling solution for Power over Ethernet (PoE) and HD applications. 10Gain XP cables provide up to 100 W of power for PoE devices and are designed to support 10 gigabit Ethernet applications. 10Gain XP cable has an overall diameter of just 0.265”, the smallest of any CAT 6A available, and is constructed with a unique, non-conductive isolation wrap around the core that blocks Alien Crosstalk (AXT). AXT protection is essential to 10 Gb Ethernet transmission performance, and 10Gain XP is guaranteed to offer a 7 dB of margin over standard industry requirements (as defined by TIA-568-C.2). This performance guarantee is designed to provide unshielded twisted-pair systems with interference protection that approaches that of shielded cabling systems.

Superior Essex 10Gain XP cables are the preferred choice for communications cabling solutions for organizations committed to sustainability, transparency and environmental responsibility. 10Gain XP cables are the only CAT 6A cables manufactured sustainably in a Zero Waste to Landfill facility, and are also the only CAT 6A cables to offer Health Product Declarations™ (HPD™), Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), and Multi-Attribute Certifications, which allow these products to contribute toward LEED certification.
