The Skinny on Slims

August 21, 2018

 

Slim patch cords have gained a lot of popularity lately because of their ability to help improve airflow and ease of cable management in high-density environments. Where space has become a premium Slims are solving to reduce congestion in today’s hyper-scale data centers.

 

However, until recently, 28 AWG patch cables were not recognized within ANSI/TIA cabling standards that required twisted-pair structured cabling to consist of 22 AWG to 26 AWG cables. In June of this year, the TIA Engineering Committee TR-42 voted to approve the new ANSI/TIA-568.2-D cabling standard which now allows for the use of 28 AWG patch cords.

 

Sounds great. So, what’s the skinny on Slims?
