Control Solutions, Inc

Manchester, NH, November 2006 – Hitachi Cable Manchester (HCM), a leader in the manufacture of copper and fiber optic communications cables, announces the Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. verification of HCM’s Supra 10GTM cable. The cable, tested to Draft 5 of TIA/EIA 568-B.2-10 (Category 6A), is the world’s first fully verified Category 6A cable. Though other manufacturers have acquired the easier to achieve channel performance verification, which includes jacks, patch panels and patch cables, only HCM has been able to make a fully component compliant Category 6A cable.

Kevin Boisvert, Research and Development Manager for HCM, described the development process for the Supra 10GTM as challenging. “Testing to 500 MHz while surpassing the alien crosstalk requirements was not an easy task. However, with HCM’s experience in developing and designing unique, high-performance category cables in shielded, hybrid and bundled cable configurations, I was confident we’d be able to engineer a cable that would meet and exceed the requirements of the standard.”

Supra 10GTM is now available through HCM approved distributors. For information on where to obtain the new Supra 10GTM, contact HCM at 800-772-0116 or visit their website at
