Reduce Crowding
with MiNo Small Diameter Patch
Cords from CommScope®

Cat 6A cables are the bee’s knees… but they aren’t flawless.

And as the world slowly, but surely, makes the move from Cat 6 to Cat 6A, surprise, surprise, a problem has emerged.

The problem?

Cat 6A cables fixed the issue with Alien crosstalk, which plagued Cat 6 at 10GbE, by giving each wire more space and then insulating each with more air around it. Doing that, though, means the diameter of a Cat 6A cable is noticeably larger than its predecessors.

In and of itself that’s not the end of the world. It becomes a major headache though when hundreds of cables are flowing into your cable manager — where space is at an absolute premium. The bigger the operation, the bigger the dilemma.

That’s where CommScope®’s MiNo6A small diameter patch cords come in… allowing you to get Cat 6A/Class EA performance in a U/UTP design. As we’ve just said, the increased diameter from a standard Cat 6A cable comes from the additional space and insulation each wire is given to prevent Alien crosstalk. That’s the definition of a game changer. But the tradeoff is a traffic jam at the endpoints due to the diameter.

MiNo6A patch cables solve that by reducing the insulation and jacket size while leaving the 28-AWG conductor size as is to bring down the overall diameter.

As CommScope notes: “[T]he plug is designed to ensure precise control of the conductors, reduce variation, and maximize performance.” In addition, and critically, “[T]esting has shown that MiNo6A cords are compliant to Category 6A performance requirements in lengths of up to 40 meters when used in direct attach applications.”
