Nexans launch new space saving cable for Data Centres

Thinner cable specifically designed for 10G networks in Data Centres.

 

Date: 21 Oct 2011

Nexans has launched a new, thinner cable which has been specifically developed for the high-density, short link environment of data centres.

Nexans new LANmark-6 10G DC50 cable addresses the commonplace issue facing data centre managers - minimal space.

Data centre facilities are required to support a very high density of cabling but often for relatively short distances, compared to office infrastructures. Data centre managers are constantly looking to improve space usage to maximise the available capacity, and minimise any restrictions to the flow of air which is used for cooling.

The new screened cable makes use of 26AWG solid conductors and supports all existing Ethernet applications, up to 10Gigabit, over 50m link lengths. By reducing the supported distance to 50m, the cable diameter can be reduced to a nominal diameter of only 5.9mm, compared to 7.6mm for a standard Cat 6A cable. In high density environments where large cable bundles are installed, this benefit is multiplied and an overall space saving of 40% can be achieved.

With smaller conductors, the screened DC50 cable provides compact and cost effective 10Gigabit cabling for the data centre.
