Manchester, NH September, 2008 - Hitachi Cable America (HCA), a leading manufacturer of copper premise cables for the communications industry proudly announces its Cat 6 ECO™ cable. Customers looking to adopt environmentally-friendly cable solutions choose the Cat6 ECO Copper Cable. The Cat 6 ECO™ product is a high performance cable alternative for installations specifying Cat6. The spike in interest of Cat6 ECO™ reinforces Hitachi's commitment to continue providing innovative product to its customers while also demonstrating its socially-responsible manufacturing practices.

"At Hitachi, we recognize the immediate benefits of developing a "green" product, such as with our new Cat6 ECO™ cable not only because of our environmental awareness, but also due to the many advantages it provides to a range of industries we currently serve. Actually Hitachi was one of the first cable manufacturers to enter the market with its new eco-friendly Cat 6 ECO™ cable, remarks Steve Kenney, Marketing Manager at Hitachi Cable America.

Cat6 ECO™ uses less material than typical Cat6 cable; thereby providing greener benefits to organizations ranging from academic institutions to medical facilities that are looking to upgrade their cabling. However, regardless of the industry, Cat 6 ECO™ will deliver better performance in many instances than standard Cat6 cable, in addition to provide the following benefits.

Cat6 ECO™ is packaged in 100% recyclable cardboard, and due to its smaller packaging, material and handling costs are reduced as more product can be shipped per pallet. With its environmentally-friendly packaging coupled with the fact that Category 6 ECO™ uses less cabling material to deliver higher performance than Cat6 cable, even at the end of its usefulness, there will be less Cat6 ECO™ impacting landfills.

Companies interested in learning more about the "green" benefits of Cat6 ECO™ cable are encouraged to contact the Sales Department at +1.800.772.0116, or visit the website Category 6 ECO Cable product page.
