Moreover, 60 seconds is considerably faster than termination times for other category 6A solutions on the market, so much so that some may assume a level of marketing hype. This real time video eliminates any doubt.

Siemon, the network infrastructure specialist, has launched a brief online video demonstrating their innovative Z-MAX™ 6A outlet termination process - the fastest category 6A termination in the cabling industry
The new video shows the entire termination of a Z-MAX 6A outlet in real time - including twisted-pair cable preparation, conductor lacing and actual termination with the one-step Z-TOOL™, and takes just under one minute. Both category 6A shielded and unshielded configurations achieve this sub-60 second termination benchmark.
In addition to the user-friendly, fast and reliable termination process, the Z-MAX 6A system offers best-in-class performance margins across all critical cabling performance parameters, exceeding all standards requirements for category 6A and for support of 10GBASE-T.
Robert Carlson, Siemon's VP of Global Marketing, explained the purpose of the video: "The Z-MAX termination process is both radically innovative and simply intuitive - that can be a tough point to get across. Short of actually terminating an outlet, there is no better way to show cabling and IT Network professionals how fast and user-friendly the Z-MAX termination process actually is - this video is a like a 60 second training module."
"Moreover, 60 seconds is considerably faster than termination times for other category 6A solutions on the market, so much so that some may assume a level of marketing hype. This real time video eliminates any doubt."
