High speed data cables

ParaLink® Cables for use in data centers

Increasingly high transmission speeds not only call for high quality cables but also make increasingly greater demands on the connecting components. These two parameters are crucial for the efficiency of the transmission channel.

Our high speed cables in the ParaLink® portfolio meet the demands of this growing challenge. All ParaLink® cables with parallel pairs are designed for differential I/O connections for servers, routers, switches, data storage devices and other applications requiring high data transmission speeds of up to 25 Gb/s per channel such as IEEE or Infiniband.

The cables are available with different jacket materials and structures. A number of products are VDE, UL and CSA recognised and are therefore suitable for the American market.

Thanks to our patented unique skin-foam-skin technology, the cables' transmission properties have been optimised using extremely stable and uniformly structured dielectrics. This means that very narrow diameters have been achieved.
