Two types of cables are recognized and recommended for use in the horizontal cabling
system. These cables are:
1. four-pair 100 Ohm unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) or screened twisted-pair (ScTP)
cables, 0.51 mm (24 AWG) to 0.64 mm (22 AWG) in diameter.
NOTE: Performance requirements for cables specified in ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2.
The recognized categories of UTP cabling are:
· Category 5e: This designation applies to 100 Ohm UTP cables and
associated connecting hardware whose transmission characteristics are
specified up to 100 MHz. ...
• Integrated front, rear, horizontal, and vertical cable management

ADC’s compact building cables are designed
for use in backbone or horizontal cabling
applications. The distribution cable features
900 μm tight buffered fibers designed to allow
for one-pass mechanical stripping.
ADC offers a wide variety of copper cable for transmission of the most critical
data transmissions. The cable portfolio includes CopperTen™ Augmented
Category 6 cable for the emerging 10 Gpbs Ethernet over UTP standard, as
well as standards-compliant cable for Category 3, Category 5, Category 5e
and Category 6 applications. Our high performance copper riser and Plenum
data cables for backbone and horizontal applications are produced by highly
automated manufacturing processes that ensure consistent quality and
dependability with superior electrical performance....
The CopperTen® Augmented Category 6 Angled Patch Panel optimizes 10 Gb/s transmission
performance with offset jack positioning to counter the negative effects of alien crosstalk. The
angled port design improves all aspects in managing horizontal cable and patch cables while
improving density when used with Glide Cable Management. It also makes modifications easy,
avoids unintended disconnects and cable damage, and protects bend radius to avoid violations
that result in signal degradation.
The EDA contains equipment cabinets and
racks installed in an alternating pattern to
create “hot” and “cold” aisles for heat dissipation.
Horizontal cables are terminated
with patch panels in the EDA. These ADC
products are typical of the component mix
found in the EDA.

Put together a price list for an upcoming cabling project. Gather pricing information for the horizontal
(UTP) cabling. If UTP is not used in the immediate area, substitute shielded products. The items
include the following:
• 24 – 1 m (3 ft) Cat 5 or higher UTP patch cables
• 24 – 3 m (10 ft) Cat 5 or higher UTP patch cables
• 2 – 15 m (50 ft) Cat 5 or higher UTP patch cables
• 152.4 m (500 ft) UTP compare the price to shielded twisted pair
• 152.4 m (500 ft) UTP plenum
Glide 6 vertical cable manager, front only ADCCMVIBS06F-2
Vertical mounted Glide cable manager, black in
colour and 6 (152mm) wide. Eliminates horizontal
patch cord minders. The four integrated slack
managers allow patch cords of any length to be
routed neatly whilst still easily accessible. Ideal for use
at the start or end of an installation of racks. To
equip both sides of a 19 rack, order two of these
ADC’s FiberGuide® Fiber Cable Management System is a trough system designed to protect and route fiber
optic patch cords, multifiber cable assemblies, and intrafacility fiber cable (IFC) to and from fiber splice
enclosures, fiber distribution frames, and fiber optic terminal devices. The FiberGuide system is designed
to ensure a 2-inch minimum bend radius is maintained throughout the system.
The FiberGuide system is a complete set of products designed and manufactured to ensure total off-frame
ADC’s TrueNet® Fiber Panels (TFP) combine the unique features of vertical cable guides and our
patented angle-left/angle right adapters, which offers bend radius protection, intuitive routing
and easy connector access. Our TFP series can be ordered in one, two, or five rack-unit sizes to
fit your unique needs. Designed for rack or cabinet mounting in the horizontal or equipment
distribution area, the TFP’s modularity, functionality and density make them ideal for mounting
in close proximity to servers, switches, routers and SANs....
