Andrew Corporation has introduced Z-Wire(TM) broadband cable that features permanent anti-corrosion protection to ensure long-term system reliability and performance for cable television multiple system operators (MSOs).

Z-Wire's corrosion resistant technology provides a dry, permanent coating that prevents weather and air pollution damage to Andrew's Daxcess(TM) drop cables. Andrew's water-based, environment friendly binding process also makes Z-Wire cable installation easier, as its unique dry anti-corrosion coating eliminates the need for messy gels or powder that require additional installer time for handling and clean-up.

Andrew is exhibiting the new patent-pending Z-Wire drop cable at Cable-Tec Expo 2005 (Booth #6024) June 15-17 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio. Z-Wire will be available to order in mid-August.

"Andrew's Z-Wire means zero corrosion and the highest level of integrity for two-way communications demanded by today's sophisticated customers," said John DeSana, group president, Antenna and Cable Products. "Backed by Andrew's worldwide leadership in radio frequency products, reliability, and technology, Z-Wire provides true protection for cable operators' networks and their customers."
