When it comes to your network, you can’t afford not to make the right connections.
An inferior structured cabling system can cause up to 70% of network downtime, even
though the system represents only 5% of the initial network investment.
That’s why you should call Black Box Network Services for our channel solutions. Our
channel solutions consist of components engineered to meet or exceed all requirements
for their respective grades. And to back up our performance claims, we guarantee—for
life—all the products in our channel solutions.
What is a channel solution?
A channel solution is a cabling system from the data center to the desktop in which
every cable, jack, and patch panel is designed to work together and give you
consistent, end-to-end performance when compared with the EIA/TIA requirements.
Why buy your channel solutions from Black Box?
A supplier may claim its products meet CAT5e or CAT6 requirements, but the proof is
in the performance. At Black Box Network Services, our GigaBase® CAT5e and
GigaTrue® CAT6 Channel Solutions are actually ETL Verified. This means that four
times a year, an independent testing lab comes into our warehouse and randomly picks
the products that will be put through a rigorous passive testing process.
During passive testing, the data is sent through the channel to see how the products
compare with the requirements in the CAT5e or CAT6 specifications and to pinpoint
how much headroom the channel solutions provide above those specifications. With our
GigaBase and GigaTrue channel solutions, the result is the same in every test: They
pass with zero errors, and that testing confirms that there’s ample headroom. This
means that our cabling, jacks, and other channel components will serve you well both
now and in the future—guaranteed.
