Unshielded Twisted Pair Cable

Twisted pair cable is one of the most common types of premise cabling. However, that doesn't mean that the many applications that rely on UTP cable don't require a specific solution. With this in mind, Hitachi Cable America has carefully designed and engineered numerous unshielded twisted cable products ranging from Category 3 power sum backbone cable to category 6a 10G cables.

Which Unshielded Twisted Pair Cable is Right for My Applications?

With cable types from Category 3a to Category 6a, unshielded communications cable covers an extremely wide range of applications. For plenum and riser installation in basic premise cabling applications, category 3 cable is frequently used for 10 BASE-T and up to 24.6 Mbps ATM. For more performance oriented solutions, premium cat6 unshielded twisted pair cable is available tested up to 660 MHz for 10GBASE-T 10 gigabit Ethernet, broadband video, 622 Mbps ATM, and more.

Most plenum and riser cables are available with a number of options and configurations including available CMP-50 rated cables and numerous cable construction options.
