GenSPEED Line of LP Listed Cable

With advancing standards, Power over Ethernet (PoE) will enable a while new class of sophisticated devices which will require higher levels of power than ever before.


PoE has been an established technology for many years, powering everything from VOIP phones to wireless access points (WAPs) at relatively low power levels of less than 60 watts. With the IEEE 802.3.bt standard expected to be ratified in 2018, up to 108 watts will be possible. This advance will allow you to power stronger WAPs, more sophisticated closed-circuit TVs with pan/tilt/zoom capabilities and even large-screen 4K HDTV's on your category cable infrastructure.

Cable choice matters in high-power PoE applications. GenSPEED®  Brand's LP listed cables can handle the heat!


It is important to understand how your cabling infrastructure will perform under the higher power levels 802.3.bt will allow. Factors such as copper guage size, cable design, bundle size and installation environment all impact a cable's ability to handle heat rise generated from high-power PoE applications. General Cable's GenSPEED line of category cables were the industry's first to achieve UL's LP listing, an independent verification that they will operate at power levels above 100 watts without exceeding the temperature rating of the cable. An LP rating provides assurance that a cable can handle the heat, no matter the bundle size or installation conditions. 

The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) includes LP listed cables in the 2017 revision of the National Electric Code (NEC) as a striaghtforward means to ensure your infrastructure can handle high-power PoE applications.
