Siemon Launches 10G ip™ - The World's Highest Performing Structured Cabling System

10G ip™ combines Siemon's 10Gb/s XGLO® Fiber Solution with the two best performing copper cabling systems available - TERA® and 10G 6™ - to deliver a network cabling infrastructure that is unsurpassed in the industry

WATERTOWN, CT — The network cabling industry is more competitive today than ever before. Staying ahead of the technological curve is a challenge, but one that Siemon has met repeatedly over the years. Now, as the company celebrates its centennial year, Siemon, a world leader in network cabling systems, is proud to announce its new 10G ip™ solution. Enterprises today are doing extraordinary things with their networks - running applications that they only dreamed about a few years ago. Today's enterprises need a networking infrastructure built to handle the emerging bandwidth-intensive, IP-based applications. 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 XGLO® fiber products, TERA® - the world's best performing copper cabling system delivering 1.2 GHz of usable bandwidth and 10G 6™ - the highest performing Category 6 (6e) cabling system with linear performance and usable bandwidth to at least 500 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 ip™ 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. XGLO® 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. TERA®, 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 TERA® system and its components offer full compliance to the new international class F, category 7, and BCT (broadcast communications technologies per ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 N 822 FCD dated 2002-12-09) standards. 10G 6™, 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.

All 10G ip™ systems and components are currently available and shipping. For more information about 10G ip™ and what it can do for your network, please visit the 10G ip™ section of our web site at
