Belden CDT Electronics Division, a world leader in the development of specialty cable products for the broadcast, commercial, industrial and residential markets, recently introduced an outdoor-rated, 4-pair shielded twisted pair (ScTP) cable that meets and exceeds all industry standards for Wi-Fi tower transmissions. The new Wi-Fi cable (Product #1300A) is designed for use in wireless transmission systems provided by manufacturers such as Cisco, Motorola, NetGear, Nokia and other leading providers. WISPs (Wireless Internet Service Providers) also using these systems to provide wireless service to customers include AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless, Clearwire, Nextel, SBC and Verizon Wireless.

Belden developed the 1300A Wi-Fi cable in response to rapidly increasing market demand for efficient, convenient wireless networking technology – at home, at work and at play. Numerous businesses have added wireless capability to their wired LANs, and many airports, hotels, casinos and retail establishments now offer public access to Wi-Fi networks, called hot spots or hot zones. Although many of these networks are supported by different industry standards – including Bluetooth®, IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g – Belden Wi-Fi cables are compatible with any system that uses RJ-45 connectors. The cable also adheres to two other applicable standards: TIA/EIA 568-B.2 Category 5e and Power over Ethernet (PoE) IEEE 802.3af.

Rugged Construction Key to Belden's Wi-Fi Cable Electrical Performance

Since Wi-Fi cables connect point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless LAN systems that run from the transmitting/receiving radios on the tower to the base station's internal electronics, they must be exceptionally rugged. Belden's Wi-Fi 1300A cable features a very thick (.030 in.), UV-resistant PVC jacket and has Belden's patented Beldfoil® shield bonded to the jacket's inner wall. This durable, weather-resistant construction allows the cable to deliver exceptionally stable electrical performance, even in high-traffic RF (radio frequency) environments.

In addition, Belden's Wi-Fi shielded twisted pair cable is easy to install and can be quickly terminated on standard RJ-45 connectors. Installation is also eased by a 24 AWG stranded tinned copper drain wire and by the sequential marking of the cable's PVC jacket at two-foot intervals.
