Manchester, NH July 2002: Hitachi Cable Manchester has released a rugged category 5e, 4-pair cable that is suitable for use in direct burial, duct, or aerial outdoor applications. The cable's heavy-duty construction features a black UV- and abrasion-resistant polyolefin jacket and a gel-filled cable core that is impervious to water penetration. The special water-blocking gel is non-conductive and has superior dielectric properties for optimum transmission performance. This cable is perfectly suited for providing telecommunications services to satellite locations such as portable classrooms and trailers in a campus environment.

The part number for the new category 5e, 4-pair outdoor cable is referenced below and will be included in Hitachi Cable America, Inc.'s comprehensive cable catalog that is currently under development.
