Hubbell Adds RD Offering to NEXTSPEED® Ascent Cable Line
Hubbell Premise Wiring’s new Category 6A Reduced Diameter (RD) cables provide a significantly smaller jacket--0.265 O.D. (plenum) or 0.275 O.D. (riser)--allowing contractors to install 25% more drops per location than most Category 6A cables. These new cables offer a high-performing, Category 6A component compliant (ANSI/TIA-568-C.2), LP rated solution. NEXTSPEED Ascent RD/LP cables are ideal for new high power IEEE 802.3bt (4PPoE) applications, such as HDBaseT Class A and B,  IEEE 802.11ac high bandwidth/high power wireless access point applications, and 10GBASE-T Ethernet 100m solutions.  

The RD Category 6A cables also incorporate a discontinuous shield, which provides significant reduction in Alien Crosstalk (AXT) loss on high performing 4-pair applications.

The cables are designed to enhance Hubbell’s C6A Ascent system, which includes:
  • NEXTSPEED Ascent Category 6A Jacks, one of the highest performing, most compact jacks available
  • Multimedia Faceplates, made of highly impact-resistance thermoplastic in a style that matches Hubbell electrical plates
  • Decorator Frames, which offer better wall-box mounting with elongated straps
  • NEXTSPEED Ascent Patch Panels, which utilize the same patented zero crosstalk contact structure as Hubbell’s NEXTSPEED Ascent Category 6A jacks
  • Jack Patch Panels, which provide flexibility and expandability for future-proofing
  • NEXTSPEED Ascent Patch Cords, with a unique cable and plug design that provides superior AXT, NEXT and Return Loss performance
