Bayanat-DPS is predicting that Category 7 cabling solutions will have an ‘immense’ impact on the deployment of network cable solutions in the Middle East, claiming that the technology will allow networks to operate more intelligently and securely, ensuring that network managers have full control of their IT infrastructure. Aviation-focused systems integrator, in conjunction with partner Nexans Cabling Solutions, claim that their network cable solutions are ready to meet the challenges of distance, capacity and installation in a variety of commercial, educational and residential environments across the Middle East. “Network infrastructure is critical to the operation of any commercial, residential, or educational enterprise, because it enables or restricts the organizations ability to communicate effectively,” said Georges Hannouche, managing director at Abu Dhabi-based DPS. The two companies reckon that airports, factories, shopping malls, hotels, sports facilities and schools are just a few of the locations showing strong demand for Category 7 solutions. The standard represent the highest bandwidth cabling available on the market and has been ratified by ISO/IEC 11801 and the CENELEC-50173 since 2002. The technology is gaining increased recognition in the Middle East as 10GB Ethernet comes of age. “The impact that the ‘Category 7 solutions’ will have on the market is immense because it will remove current network barriers such as Alien Crosstalk — outside interference — ensuring the user has a secure and reliable solution in place,” said Tarek Helmy, regional director, Nexans Cabling Solutions. Category 7 cabling handles up to 1000 MHz of bandwidth, whereas previous technologies were based on much more conservative standards. For example, Category 5e accommodated just 100 MHz while Category 6 handled 250 MHz.
