Cat 6A10 July 2018, Glenrothes, UK — In the increasingly diverse global data center and enterprise market, today’s networks require copper infrastructure that offers reliable, repeatable performance with minimal downtime in demanding, mission-critical environments. IT managers are looking for solutions they can deploy faster to reduce labor costs and get their network up and running without delay. To meet these unique needs of IT customers around the world, Leviton expanded its EU Data Center Factory capabilities to include a full line of make-to-order (MTO) pre-terminated shielded copper trunks in addition to their existing fiber optic trunks. Most trunks can be configured and manufactured with quick turnaround and rapid shipping to jobsites throughout Europe and the Middle East.

“The EU Data Center Factory provides IT managers with high-performance MTO offerings paired with the best service in the industry,” said Dean Lipke, Vice President of Leviton Network Solutions Copper Systems. “Our new copper MTO solutions allow us to solve each customer’s specific application challenges and system requirements while ensuring accurate factory terminations that ship pre-tested for guaranteed results and quick deployments.”

The new copper trunk MTO offering is available in shielded EuroClass cable types, including LSHF/LSZH products, with pre-terminated Atlas-X1™, e2XHD, and 10G zone cabling small-diameter, high-density cable options. Leviton's Cat 6A shielded zone cable has the smallest diameter in the industry, saving pathway space in trays and cabinets and offering a 30% weight reduction. Leviton's unique Double-Helix looming process prevents kinking, making the assembly easier to handle and highly durable, enabling faster network deployment and optimal system performance.

Headquartered in Glenrothes, Scotland, the Data Center Factory runs on world-class IT systems with online configurators that allow for rapid pricing and delivery. Leviton's MTO solutions reduce onsite labor and materials for lower cost and waste compared with field-terminated systems. Pre-tested factory terminations guarantee performance, eliminate the need for field testing, and decrease downtime during moves, adds, and changes.

In addition to its range of copper solutions, the MTO product set includes fiber optic HDX and e2XHD cassettes, as well as fiber array cords and trunks. For more information on Leviton's MTO product lines, visit
