Demonstration of Leviton’s Cat 8 System


We’ll start off with really something unique
in the show right now, which is our Cat 8 presentation here. This is a working Cat 8 channel with Leviton
connectivity, including the connectors themselves and the patch cords with Berk-Tek cable. And it’s being tested and you can see over
here over on the left that it’s passing the test. This are the new Fluke Networks testers, field
testers that have been introduced to the show as well. We work quite closely with them. And we’ve heard from others that this is the
only working RJ45 Cat 8 system at the show today. That Cat 8 is based on the Atlas platform. and the Atlas platform is the only full metal
body jack that goes from Cat 5e all the way up through Cat 8 and including the shielded
which is 6A, 6 and 6A shielded and Cat 8 is fully shielded. And some of the key things here is 13 colors,
internal shutters can be ordered on that up through 6A. You can mix and match icons. It’s got a retention force technology which
helps keep that connectivity in there and for intermittent data misses. As well as for PoE, when you disconnect if
there’s any arcing, we, with that RFT technology, make sure that arcing happens not at the point
of connectivity so you don’t get any corrosion on the contact points. So a really great platform, very unique, best
connector in the marketplace. If you’re customers might be interested in
some of those things that I’ve pointed out, best way to do it is, go ahead to graybar
