Canon Australia recently faced this challenge when selecting cabling infrastructure for their new Sydney headquarters. Canon’s main considerations were:

  • The vast amount of data moved each day by CiSRA, Canon’s research arm
  • The need for backwards compatibility
  • Choosing a product that could serve their business today and in the future and provide exceptional value over time

After exploring the latest technologies, Canon was convinced the Clipsal Actassi Cat 7A/Class FA GG45 offered the best solution on the market and would be their best investment for the future.

Cat 7A/Class FA is currently the highest ISO Classification for balanced cabling systems in the world. The Clipsal Actassi Cat 7A/Class FA GG45 solution installed at Canon is the first of its kind in Australasia, joining an array of FA GG45 installations globally.

Key benefits of Class FA Cable

While other manufacturers can offer a Class FA solution, only Clipsal by Schneider Electric (Clipsal) can provide a backwards compatible GG45 connector with an RJ45 interface.

Sergei Vovchak, Clipsal Business Development Manger – Network Connectivity, said “the GG45 Class FA solution has been tested to exceed the ISO Class FA performance requirements, supporting the latest Ethernet Protocol of 10GBase-T whilst providing the extra bandwidth”.

Clipsal recommended Datatech Australia (Datatech) carry out the Canon installation based on Datatech’s experience, the quality of their work and their ability to deliver a functioning system that meets client requirements. Clipsal said Datatech are not just cable installers, they are a company who is experienced at engineering a solution.

Datatech is also one of only a handful of companies in Australia who are approved to install Class FA cable. As a result, Datatech was chosen to work with City Electrical as the approved structured cabling system partner on the Canon project.

Chris Lette, Datatech Project Manager, praised the innovative cable saying “the network is capable of supporting higher bandwidth simply by switching patch cords. This is particularly beneficial when on day one you may not require the high bandwidth performance Class FA connectivity can achieve”.
