Component compliance of Cat.6A shielded connector gives Nexans highest performance Cat.6A cabling system

Paris, June 2009 – Nexans announces that its LANmark-6A shielded snap-in connector has successfully received Cat.6A component compliance certification. This product was certified by the independent test institute EC Cabling Group of DELTA on June 9 in Horsholm Denmark. Testing was done against the following standards:

  • Draft ISO/IEC 11801: 2002 amendment 2, Category 6A
  • Reference draft IEC 60603-7-51 and draft IEC 60512-27-100ANSI/TIA-568-B.2-10, Category 6A
