Cat 6a cabling
ADC Krone CopperTen
is ADC Krones elliptical-shaped augmented category 6 cable. The cable
can enable a 10 gigabit ethernet to be implemented over unshielded twisted pair
up to the full 100 metres required for a structured cabling system.
Normal category 6 cabling systems have insertion loss and alien crosstalk at
higher frequencies which disrupt transmission and high-speed data communication.
However, Krone says that the CopperTen uses an elliptical shape to avoid the
disturbance from signal noise emerging from the adjacent cables within the same
bundle. The cable ellipse is non-symmetrical and off-centre and creates a larger
air footprint to generate more separation and prevent alien crosstalk by isolating
each connector from the other.

PoE by Allied Telesyn is a 24-port layer 3 Fast Ethernet switch with power over
Ethernet (PoE) capabilities. It targets the mid-sized networks and distributed
PoE allows devices to receive power over the existing LAN cabling and eliminates
the need for separate power supplies. Powered devices like IP phones, wireless
access points, network webcams and hubs/switches can make use of the PoE technology
to draw power from the AT-8624 PoEs power supply. AT-8624 PoE can also
power Web cams used in security applications, and provide uninterrupted service
even in the case of power failure, as the network can be backed up with a UPS
system. It provides stacking support.
