Z-MAX® 6A UTP Category 6A System

  • 10Gb/s 6A UTP Cabling System
  • Industry's Fastest Termination Time
  • Alien Crosstalk Elimination

Siemon's Z-MAX 6A UTP solution was developed from the ground up with a single goal: shattering the limitations of category 6A UTP cabling as we know it today. Combining patent-pending PCB-based smart plugs, optimized outlets, reduced diameter cable and high-density patch panels, the Z-MAX 6A UTP system provides outstanding margin on all TIA and ISO performance requirements for category 6A/class EA, including critical alien crosstalk parameters.

And, the innovative Z-TOOL™ termination process eliminates the variability of field terminations, providing faster, more user-friendly and less-error-prone category 6A UTP installations.
