As the shielded panels are built on the new Evolve panel platform, iPatch®
Intelligent panels can be included and upgrades to Intelligence in
the field are easy, without any network disruption. By integrating
CommScope’s industry-leading network intelligence solution with this new
shielded solution, customers now have complete visibility and control of
their shielded physical layer infrastructure.
This shielded solution allows for easy termination and has been
specifically engineered with enhanced performance to support 100-meter
channels as well as short channel configurations, offering maximum
flexibility and minimizing excess cable and patch cord lengths. It
complies with the ratified IEEE 802.3an 10GBASE-T standard, Class EA
cabling channel specifications and Category 6A cabling specifications.
The new outlet is also TAA compliant for use in the government
This next-generation solution supports the bandwidth needs of today’s
enterprises and the needs of more demanding applications such as high
resolution video, cloud computing, data centers and Storage Area
Network/Network Attached Storage (SAN/NAS).
