CommScope, Inc. (NYSE: CTV), a global leader in infrastructure solutions
for communications networks, is extending the reach of its SYSTIMAX®
GigaSPEED® X10D FTP (Foiled Twisted Pair) Solution--globally.
The solution, released in October 2006, was only available in the
Europe, Middle East and African (EMEA) market. The GigaSPEED X10D FTP
solution is developed for customers around the world with a strong
preference for FTP solutions and is designed to support and exceed the
IEEE 802.3an 10GBASE-T (10 Gb/s Ethernet over twisted pair cabling)
standard ratified last summer.
“We are dedicated to responding to our customers,” said Mark Peterson,
Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, Enterprise, CommScope. “Since
there is a certain portion of the market that prefers an FTP solution,
we intend to address that demand. The GigaSPEED X10D FTP solution offers
customers advanced technology, as well as 10 Gb/s speeds for network
performance and reliability, in a design that meets their needs.
The FTP solution has been specifically engineered with enhanced cable
and connector performance designed to support the emerging 10 Gb/s
Ethernet requirements. Optimized with a four-pair construction and
aluminum foil tape, the solution is equipped with a patented
high-technology pair isolator and an optimized twist and strand scheme
that provides an extra margin of performance required for high-bandwidth
In addition, the GigaSPEED X10D FTP cables are optimized with the
GigaSPEED X10D connectors and cords to minimize internal channel
crosstalk and crosstalk between channels in close proximity. The
solution delivers next-generation support by providing double the
bandwidth of today’s Category 6 cabling channel and guaranteed
performance in worst-case installation conditions out to 500 MHz. The
cables have a round cable construction with a flat taped isolator that
speeds the handling and termination process. SYSTIMAX® Solutions’
premium design and testing capabilities combine to create a solution
that exhibits far superior channel performance to legacy FTP solutions.
“Since we released the FTP 10G solution end of last year, the strong
demand for the solution in that market is clearly evident,” Peterson
added. “The introduction of this solution on a global scale will further
serve to expand our leadership position in the 10 Gb/s Ethernet
