With the increased complexity of 10 Gig systems, it is necessary to design data communications cables that are able to mitigate the problem of alien crosstalk while maintaining ease of use, which leads to reduced installation time and costs. General Cable’s GenSPEED® 10 MTP™ Cat 6A Cable design utilizes a revolutionary patent-pending Mosaic Crossblock™ layer that allows the cable to perform like an FTP cable, but install like a UTP cable. This design provides the performance and size of a traditional F/UTP (Foil Twisted Pairs) or S/FTP (Shielded Twisted Pairs) cable, while being as easy to use and install as a UTP cable.
