Siemon's One Minute Wonder

Online video shows Z-MAX 6A network cabling outlet terminated in under 60 seconds.


Siemon, the network infrastructure specialist, has launched a brief online video demonstrating their innovative Z-MAX™ 6A outlet termination process - the fastest category 6A termination in the cabling industry.

The new video shows the entire termination of a Z-MAX 6A outlet in real time - including twisted-pair cable preparation, conductor lacing and actual termination with the one-step Z-TOOL™ , proving that the process can be completed in just under one minute. Both category 6A UTP and shielded configurations achieve this sub-60 termination benchmark.

In addition to the user-friendly, fast and reliable termination process, the Z-MAX 6A system offers best-in-class performance margin across all critical cabling performance parameters, meeting or exceeding all standards requirements for category 6A and for support of 10GBASE-T.

Graeme Stoker, marketing manager for Siemon EMEA explains the purpose of the video: "The Z-MAX termination process is both radically innovative and simply intuitive - that can be a tough point to get across. Short of actually terminating an outlet, there is no better way to show cabling and IT network professionals how fast and user-friendly the Z-MAX termination process actually is - it is a like a 60 second training module."

"Moreover, 60 seconds is considerably faster than termination times for other category 6A solutions on the market, so much so that some may assume a level of marketing hype. This real time video eliminates any doubt."

The real time video can be downloaded from the Z-MAX section on the Siemon website

For greater technical insight, Siemon has also created a detailed, step-by-step Z-MAX instructional video:
