Kordz delivers the products and support systems integrators need to advance their Cat6 networking projects with faster, easier installs and top-notch performance.  

Hong Kong, China (February 16, 2023) – Dedicated to providing systems integrators with the premium cabling products, tools, and support they need to deliver exceptional connectivity to their customers, Kordz has developed a comprehensive, insightful Professional Briefing on the history, evolution, recommended practices, and growing use cases of 28AWG Cat6 and Cat6a cable in computer networks. Particularly helpful to integrators faced with fitting cable through tight spaces and challenging retrofit situations, the thinner, more flexible form factor of 28AWG cable offers greater installation ease than bulkier traditional 23 and 24AWG cables. 

The paper, Kordz Professional Briefing: The Application of 28 AWG Category 6 and 6a Cable for Small and Medium Sized Networks, is available to systems integrators at https://www.kordz.com/whitepapers/. Replete with fresh, relevant content, it provides integrators with a strong working knowledge of 28AWG cable that can be applied to current and future small to mid-sized networking projects. The Professional Briefing also details Kordz’s new Cat6 28AWG networking solution, PRO SlimCat™ Network Cable System, a turnkey solution for fast, reliable end-to-end connectivity that meets all current networking standards and is PoE++ compliant up to 50 meters. 

“Computer networks have come a long way since their inception in the late ‘70s. Network cable technology has progressed along the way, leading us to the next generation of Cat6 and Cat6a cable — a 28AWG solution that delivers all the advanced performance required of today’s technology in a thinner, more flexible cable that’s easier to handle and install,” says James Chen, Kordz Managing Director. “Systems integrators looking to stay ahead of the technological curve should embrace new 28AWG as a viable alternative to their standard network cable. Our PRO SlimCat™ line coupled with our informative Professional Briefing gives them all the knowledge and tools they need to progress their skills and offerings to the latest generation of Cat6 cable.” 

As outlined in the Professional Briefing, utilizing thin, flexible 28AWG Cat6 cable can simplify installation in high-density equipment racks, tight bend radiuses, and cramped wall spaces. Despite being half the size of other Cat6 cables, it supports the data rates and bandwidth requirements of current networking standards. Discussed are 28AWG solutions including Kordz PRO and PRS Patch Cords, as well as its new PRO SlimCat™ Network Cable System.
