Build a custom pre-terminated patch panel system in five easy steps:
1. Select Performance Rating
Consider what active equipment or devices will be supported throughout the entire network. Use Foiled Twisted Pair (FTP) in environments with high Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). Use Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) in environments with low interference.
|CAT6A FTP||500 MHz||10/100/1000 Base-T/10 GbE, Digital Video, IEEE 802.3at for PoE Plus|
|CAT6A UTP||500 MHz||10/100/1000 Base-T/10 GbE, Digital Video, IEEE 802.3at for PoE Plus|
|CAT6e||250 MHz||10/100/1000 Base-T, Digital Video, Phone, IEEE 802.3at for PoE Plus|
- 10GbE CAT6A Shielded (FTP)
- 10GbE CAT6A Unshielded (UTP)
- 1GbE CAT6e Unshielded (UTP)
2. Select Cable Rating
Consider fire rating of material and airflow. Most data center environments can use riser-rated cable (CMR). Use CMR in vertical settings, such as cable running between floors through cable risers. Use plenum-rated cable (CMP) in raised flooring systems, drop ceilings and air handling ducts. Always consult with city or building authorities for the latest code before deciding the type of cable.
- Riser-rated CMR
- Plenum-rated CMP
3. Select Jack Color
Note: For CAT6 Shielded FTP cable please select Metallic.
- Metallic (FTP Only)
4. Select Length
Consider accessibility to active equipment and the layout of the room when measuring, then round up to the nearest foot. We build up to 295 feet per TIA® standard.
- 25 feet to 200 feet, in five foot increments
5. Order Bracket Panels and Cable Management Brackets (sold separately)
A bracket panel is required to mount the cabling onto the rack or cabinet. The panel has four ports to snap in bezels. If there are any unused ports, Cablesys offers a blank bezel to cover them. Cable management brackets help organize and secure cords and cables.
Here are links to view the available options:
