Is coax dead? Not if you talk to Belden customers! But neither is fiber optic cable or premise/data “Category” cable. There was even a signed petition going around that asked that coax continue – and we’re listening! We’re now up to five sizes of 4K 12 GHz coax, and virtually our complete digital coax line at 6 GHz. In this presentation, we start with an analysis of the three choices, fiber, twisted pairs and coax, and the advantages and limitations for each of those. Then we’ll show you the results of six years of hard work and product development keeping coax alive.
