Optical Cable Corporation Announces Introduction of Next Generation Category 8 Connector

Optical Cable Corporation announced the introduction of the first commercially available connector designed to meet the coming Category 8 (Cat8) copper connectivity and cabling industry standard developed by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). The company's Cat8 Field Terminable Plug is designed to provide the high level of performance for direct attach, high speed applications when used in combination with a Category 8 copper cable, providing data transmission speeds of up to 40 Gb/s (gigabits per second). The company's new Cat8 plug meets the latest draft of ANSI/TIA-568-C.2-1 Balanced Twisted-Pair Telecommunications Cabling and Components Standard, Addendum 1: Specifications for 100 ohms Category 8 Cabling, expected to be released for publication by the TIA late next year. The Category 8 standard defines the performance requirements of copper cables and connectivity for the next generation of BASE-T Ethernet being developed by the IEEE in the P802.3bq Task Force, which will be termed 40GBASE-T. The OCC Category 8 Field Installable Plug announced uses the same shielded housing used in the company's Category 6A Shielded Field Installable Plug-a design that enables simple terminations with no specialized tools. These products are ideal for direct attach, high speed links and data center server connections.
