Enterprises today are doing extraordinary things with their networks - running applications that they only dreamed about a few years ago. To do so, they need a networking infrastructure built to handle emerging bandwidth-intensive, IP-based applications.

To answer the growing demand in the global marketplace for new IP-based applications at speeds up to 10 Gb/s and better, Siemon is delivering a true, next generation cabling system: 10G ip™. Designed specifically to handle the added burden placed on the cabling system as a result of converging applications, 10G ip™ is Siemon's leading solution for network performance that will stand the test of time.

10G ip™ was created specifically for this purpose and gives enterprise customers the ability to maximize their investment in IP networking equipment while decreasing costs and improving revenues. 10G ip™ features Siemon's 10 Gb/s XGLOä fiber products, TERAä - the world's best performing copper cabling system delivering 1.2 GHz of usable bandwidth and 10G 6ä - the highest performing Category 6 (6e) cabling system with linear performance and usable bandwidth to at least 625 MHz. Siemon's 10G ip™ delivers the power enterprise customers need to grow their businesses.

"Today's businesses are looking for innovative ways to increase productivity and to ensure the safety of their employees and the security of their intellectual property," says Carl Siemon, President of The Siemon Company. "Increasingly, they expect their significant investment in IT to provide productivity and security benefits that translate directly to their bottom line. Whether it's high tech manufacturing with video monitoring, the implementation of Voice over IP or some other advanced application, two things remain constant: it's all becoming IP-based and it's all running over your network cabling system. 10G ipä gives your business the foundation it needs to succeed in today's increasingly connected world."

10G ip™ is the culmination of years of research and development and combines the best of Siemon technology. XGLOä Fiber cabling, Siemon's newest fiber system, features singlemode and multimode LC and SC style laser optimized components and is designed for applications ranging from 1Gb/s to 10 Gb/s backbones to fiber to the desk. TERAä, the undisputed leader in copper cabling performance, is ideal for multimedia transmission over a single STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cable. With the capability to handle voice, data and video simultaneously over a single horizontal link, the TERAä system and its components offer full compliance to the new international class F and category 7 standards. 10G 6ä, Siemon's leading Category 6 cabling system, is the best choice for UTP and screened (ScTP) cabling to the work area. Combined, these products make up the 10G ip™ solution, and deliver the world's best performing and most complete cabling system options.
