Corning Cable Systems Announces the Launch of its FutureCom(TM) S500 RJ45 Module.

BERLIN, Germany, November 27 /PRNewswire/ --

- Corning Maintains a Leadership Position in Shielded Copper Products as its new FutureCom S500 Shielded Copper RJ45 Module Achieves Independent Third-Party Cat.6A Component Certification

Corning Cable Systems LLC, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, announces the launch of its new FutureCom(TM) S500 RJ45 module. This high-performance, fully-shielded Cat.6A copper module is the first in the industry to receive a certification, as per approved TIA Standard 2008-04, Augmented Category 6, ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 Component Standard, by GHMT, an accredited, independent test lab for cabling and connection components.

With the introduction of the FutureCom S500 module as an essential part of the FutureCom EA system, Corning maintains a leading position in terms of component and channel performance for 10Gbit/s Ethernet shielded copper systems, making it an ideal solution for high end data centre and local area network (LAN) applications.

The FutureCom S500 module is part of the new FutureCom EA system, the latest addition to Corning's 10Gbit/s Ethernet copper cabling systems family. The system offers high network performance and security with alien cross talk protection that is compliant with the Cat.6A requirements. It also supports Power over Ethernet and Power over Ethernet Plus. The FutureCom EA system exceeds international ISO/IEC 11801:2002 Amd1:2008 and American ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10-CAT6A system standards requirements.

The FutureCom EA system is fully backward compatible with the IEEE 802.3an standard; the recently released ISO/IEC Class EA standards; the ISO/IEC and EN Classes E and D and the TIA Cat.6 and Cat.5e standards.

The FutureCom S500 module incorporates robustness, ease of installation and handling as well as high quality network performance. Its die-cast housing provides 360-degree shielding and protection, and its secured, dust-protection lid covers unused ports. The installation is made simpler and faster by the innovative three-piece design and the intuitive wire management system. In installation environments where space is a concern, the module's 0-degree and 90-degree cable entries allow easy installation were space is a concern. In addition to the established modular footprint, an alternative keystone footprint provides installation compatibility with a wide range of hardware options from outlets to panels.

The insulation displacement connector (IDC) technology allows for fast and easy termination without special tooling or wire preparation. The module comes in a new dark blue insert (RAL 5017), which allows easy differentiation to lower performing modules in existing installations.

Furthermore, module assembly is simplified by the use of a single tool for all copper modules.

The new FutureCom S500 module is immediately available.
