Reduce cabling channels by running multiple applications over single cable and outlet

Cable sharing is the practice of running multiple applications over a single cable. Utilizing the category 7A interface based on Siemon's TERA outlet, up to four applications can be supported over a single cable and outlet.

The connector's four quadrant fully shielded design and a variety of 1, 2, and 4- pair patch cord options allows support for a variety of application combinations using one 1 category 7A connection capable of supporting application speeds beyond 10GBASE-T:

  • two 10/100 Ethernet connections
  • one 1-pair video, one 1-pair legacy voice and one 2-pair 10/100 connection
  • two 2-pair VoIP phone connections
  • four CATV video feeds
  • and a variety of other combinations
