Slim cables mean BIG savings.
Gain nearly 50% more space and reduce clutter in crowded cabinets and racks with Slim-Net CAT6/CAT6A patch cables. With a diameter of only .161”, 28-AWG cable is nearly half the size of a 24-AWG cable.

  • Save space in high-density cabinets and racks in telecom rooms and data centers.
