Hitachi Cable America Inc. introduces a small-diameter cable designed specifically to accommodate 10-gigabit Ethernet. The new 10G RDTM is a highly enhanced Category 6 cable that has been designed to be installer friendly, yet deliver guaranteed 10-gigabit Ethernet support up to 90 meters in a channel configuration. As such, the cable exceeds all Alien Crosstalk performance requirements necessary for effective 10-gigabit throughput. The cable has a small outside diameter (.29 inches) that allows for a greater number of cables to be installed in a conduit compared to other 10-gigabit cables. The 10G RDTM is an unshielded cable (UTP) and, therefore, does not require the bonding associated with shielded cables. The 10G RDTM comes on 1,000 ft. reels and is available in a wide range of colors. The 10G RDTM is UL verified for performance and is both REACH and RoHS compliant. The 10G RDTM is only available in CMP. The cable, when part of a certified installation, can be covered by Hitachi Cable’s Lifetime Warranty.
