Mohawk Announces GigaLAN 10™ for High-Speed Performance to the Desktop

Leominster, MA - Mohawk, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic and copper cable products, announces the release of GigaLAN 10™ to deliver 10 GbE to the desktop to meet increasing bandwidth requirements for evolving applications, such as enterprise data centers. Due to extended performance capabilities through the unique engineering of GigaLAN 10™, it becomes the cost-effective twisted-pair solution to fiber.

GigaLAN 10™ meets the proposed Augmented Category 6 New Class E specifications, which will become TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10, to support the operation of 10GBase-T over 100 meters. Transmission will employ full-duplex (transmitting and receiving simultaneously) over all four-pairs for a data rate of 2.5 Gb/s per twisted pair and extend the frequency characterization of existing Category 6 cabling requirements to 500 MHz.

“GigaLAN 10 cables utilizes Mohawk’s proven ‘FlexWeb’ technology which isolates the cable pairs and has outstanding pair-to-pair balance for superior headroom,” states Greg Niemiera, RCDD, Manager of Technical Sales and Marketing for Mohawk. “This product also incorporates a unique jacket design for reduced alien crosstalk. Alien crosstalk is the main concern with 10 Gigabit Ethernet copper cable performance,” adds Niemiera.
