Some of the advantages of 10GXW Cable as mentioned by Belden

Easy Installation and Routing

Belden in its press release stated that 10GXW Cable is the smallest, lightest Category 6A cable available with a diameter of 0.250 inches. The installation and routing through scarce spaces is also easier due to its compact size.

Uniform Heat Flow

10GXW Cables use Belden’s patent EquiBlock technology for uniform heat flow dissipation to avoid hotspots in cable bundles.

Superior Performance

Cable balance (Twists in cable pair to balance the electromagnetic field) has also been improved which means superior noise immunity performance. This helps data signals reach endpoint devices without reliability issues like slow speeds or downtime.

Expressing his views on the launch Mr. Matt Baum, Product Line Manager, Belden enterprise connectivity said, “Enterprise wireless access ports requiring Category 6A performance are projected to grow by over 30% through 2022 to support increases in mobile data traffic. To support this increase, cabling infrastructure will also need to change to accommodate it. 10GXW Cables allow easy upgrades to Category 6A performance levels, using a cabling solution that supports multi-gigabit applications and reduces labor and material costs”.
