Our technical engineer Garrett Swindell presents an overview of the DKM FX, next-generation matrix switching. This modular, flexible system enables instantaneous non-blocking matrix switching of DVI-D, DVI-I, USB-HID, USB 2.0,... more/see it nowRS-232, analog audio, or digital audio. It's ideal for broadcast, pre- and post-production, professional A/V markets, and any other collaborative environments using HD video and peripheral switching. collapse
Category 6 (CAT6)–Class E has a specified frequency of 250 MHz, significantly improved bandwidth capacity over CAT5e, and easily handles Gigabit Ethernet transmissions. In recent years, it has been the... more/see it nowcable of choice for new structured cabling systems. CAT6 supports 1000BASE-T and, depending on the installation, 10GBASE-T (10-GbE).
10-GbE over CAT6 introduces the problem of Alien Crosstalk (ANEXT), the unwanted coupling of signals between adjacent pairs and cables. Because ANEXT in CAT6 10-GbE networks is so dependent on installation practices, TSB-155 qualifies 10-GbE over CAT6 up to 55 meters and requires it to be 100% tested. To mitigate ANEXT in CAT6, it is recommended that you unbundle the cables and increase the separation between the cables.
You can always contact Black Box Tech Support to answer your cabling questions. Our techs can recommend cable testers and steer you in the right direction when you’re installing new cabling. And the advice is FREE! collapse
With breakout- or fanout-style cables, the fibers are packaged individually. A breakout cable is basically several simplex cables bundled together in one jacket. Breakout cables are suitable for riser and... more/see it nowplenum applications, and conduit runs. This differs from distribution-style cables where several tight-buffered fibers are bundled under the same jacket. This design of the breakout cable adds strength to the cable, although that makes it larger and more expensive than distribution-style cables. Because each fiber is individually reinforced, you can divide the cable into individual fiber lines. This enables quick connector termination, and eliminates the need for patch panels. Breakout cable can also be more economical because it requires much less labor to terminate.You may want to choose a cable that has more fibers than you actually need in case of breakage during termination or for future expansion. collapse
