Hubbell Premise Wiring Introduces Two New NEXTSPEED® Shielded Jacks

Shelton, Conn. – May 11, 2016 – Hubbell Premise Wiring has released two NEXTSPEED Shielded Jacks, designed to deliver impressive reliability and consistency: a Shielded Category 6 Jack and Ascent Shielded Category 6A Jack.

To maintain twist integrity of structured cabling and ensure consistent electrical performance, the NEXTSPEED Shielded Category 6 Jack and NEXTSPEED Ascent Shielded Category 6A Jack feature a unique, tool-less termination body. This allows cable to be laced in without disrupting the pairs. The jack’s locking cap ensures termination retention during installation, and helps the cable maintain performance.

The jacks’ mechanical die cast construction offer the reliability and rigidity needed in any shielded installation.

NEXTSPEED Shielded Category 6 Jacks provide:

  • Superior EMI and ANEXT protection for reduced interference
  • Quick and easy grounding
  • Backward compatibility with Category 5e hardware and applications
  • Slim high-density form factor
  • Use in IEEE 802.3ab 1000BASE-T and IEEE 802.3bt 4-pair PoE applications, as well as TIA/EIA TSB-155 10GbE over 55 meters
  • Easy installation into Hubbell iSTATION products

NEXTSPEED Ascent Shielded Category 6A Jacks provide:

  • Highest reliability level in the industry
  • Added protection against ANEXT, external noise, and EMI interference
  • Headroom over TIA and ISO requirements, eliminating AXT testing
  • Backward compatibility with Category 5e and Category 6 hardware and applications
  • Transparent 10G signal path
  • Use in IEEE 802.3an 10GBASE-T and IEEE 802.3bt 4-pair PoE applications, as well as IEEE 802.11ac and 802.11ax wireless access point deployments
  • Suitability for links between 2m and 90m

“NEXTSPEED Shielded Category 6 and Category 6A Jacks are 100% factory tested for quality performance,” says Nate Herring, senior product manager for Hubbell Premise Wiring. “The jacks help support current and future technology applications while decreasing cable installation costs.”
