High-quality patch cords are a critical and sometimes overlooked, part of any high-performance cabling system. Leviton's eXtreme 6+ Patch Cords use compliant stranded wire as specified by the latest published TIA guidelines to ensure adequate 'flex life' and long term channel integrity. All of Leviton's patch cords have quality construction to maintain the quality of signal transmission at the cross-connect, which is critical to the performance of the entire cabling system. eXtreme 6+ System components meet or exceed the requirements for channel/component-level performance per TIA/EIA Category 6 and are part of Leviton's high-performance eXtreme 6+ System, which delivers reliable, error-free transmission in an active, real-time network environment. Leviton's eXtreme 6+ patch cords are designed to be used in typical Category 6 channel applications. Leviton's eXtreme 6t systems are designed for use in high megabit applications such as Gigabit Ethernet.
