Manchester, NH March, 2008 - Hitachi Cable America (HCA) continues to be a leader in the development of new and innovative copper and fiber optic communication cables. Our Category 6A Shielded Cable and Category 6A Unshielded Cable exceed all TIA/EIA-568-B.2.10 approved standards.

HCA is the first manufacturer to have UL verified Category 6A cable in both shielded and unshielded versions. With the Category 6A standard, TIA/EIA-568-B.2.10, now approved, customers can take full advantage of the benefit of open architecture that the standard provides. Any connectivity that meets the Category 6A standard, when mated to HCA's Category 6A Supra 10G (UTP or F/UTP), will deliver reliable 10-gigabit throughput. This open architecture approach, for which the TIA/EIA standards were developed, allows customers the flexibility to design an infrastructure that meets their specific needs. And, with a Lifetime Warranty available through Hitachi Cable America, the performance of that infrastructure is guaranteed
