Nexans launches high speed ethernet solutions
Nexans announced the launch of its LANmark-7A and LANmark-8 copper systems to support bandwidths of 25Gb/s and 40Gb/s Ethernet. LANmark-7A is now upgraded to support frequency of 1250MHz to cope with the demands of 25GBase-T.
It supports existing RJ45 based legacy equipment using the backwards-compatibility of GG45 connectivity. This allows seamless migration to 25G over 30m while being fully compatible with 10GBaseT over distances greater than 100m.LANmark-7A provides the required headroom for the cabling purposes as well. Existing installations of LANmark-7A may also be qualified to support 25GBase-T.
The LANmark-8, is based on LANmark-7A, with ability to support frequencies up to 2000MHz, enabling transmission of 40GBase-T over 30m. It is based on Nexans’GG45 connector, which is a screened RJ45 compatible cable jack specified up to 2000MHz. Both these copper-based solutions are designed specifically to support high frequency Ethernet applications in excess of 10 Gigabits.
“We are pleased to introduce LANmark-7A and LANmark-8 in the Middle East. Our customers can now scale up to 25G and 40G Ethernet with these new products that are designed for scalable high speed data center applications.” said Tarek Helmy, Regional Director Gulf and Middle East, South & East Africa at Nexans Cabling Solutions.
