Brand-Rex, a Leviton Company, will showcase the Leviton Atlas-X1 unshielded and shielded jacks to the European market

Glenrothes, Scotland, March 16, 2017 – Brand-Rex, a Leviton Company, will showcase the Leviton Atlas-X1 unshielded and shielded jacks to the European market at Data Centre World in London. Attendees can stop by stand M35 to see the innovative structured cabling system first hand and get a live demonstration of Atlas-X1 Cat 8 connectivity.

The Atlas-X1 is the industry’s first jack platform to support shielded applications from Category 8 to 5e and unshielded applications from Category 6A to 5e, all on one unified form factor. Ideal for deployment in mission-critical data centres, Atlas-X1 offers tool-free termination for simplified installations and is easily scalable for network migration up to 40GBASE-T.

“The Atlas-X1 system is designed and manufactured to ensure the highest levels of performance and reliability,” said Mark Dearing, Leviton senior product manager of copper systems. “It provides exceptional headroom above the ISO/IEC standards in both short- and long-channels, and offers the greatest number of features for today’s demanding networks.”

Atlas-X1 jacks are manufactured in the USA and independently tested to exceed component, permanent link and channel margins across all category ratings, delivering performance above the ISO/IEC 11801 and ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 requirements.

Atlas-X1 unshielded and shielded jacks are feature-rich and offer a wide range of benefits, including:
• Industry-Leading Performance – Atlas-X1 is the industry’s only unshielded jack to feature a solid metal body for 53% greater heat dissipation in PoE applications, and is third-party verified to exceed all component, permanent link and channel margins for exceptional network performance.
• Tool-Free Termination – The innovative wire manager and door-release lever support the industry’s fastest tool-free termination and re-termination, saving time and reducing labour costs.
• Exceptional Versatility – Atlas-X1 is the only unshielded and shielded jack offered in 13 colours, with colour-matched icons and QuickPort® compatibility for greater network planning flexibility.
• Built for the Future – Part of a scalable, high-end structured cabling system built on a unified form factor that supports emerging network trends, PoE up to 100W and future migrations to 40GBASE-T.
