Hello, my name is Melvin Owens, Director of Engineering for Allen Tel products and I am here today to talk to you about patch cords.

In today's business environment the computer network has become the central part of about any business. Whether it be e-commerce, emergency services, healthcare, or education. All these businesses rely on their computer network to deliver critical goods and services.

In that computer network, structured cabling is a central part of that delivery to the user. Recent studies have shown up to 6% of network downtime can be traced back to the structure cabling network. A patch cord can be the weakest link in that structured cabling.

A minimally compliant patch cord can cause network downtime issues and loss of productivity and revenue. Why trust critical network delivery to a minimally compliant patch cord when the patch cord is typically one of the least costly components in the structured cabling network.

Allen Tel products provide a wide variety of patch cords. In Category 5e, Category 6, and Category 6a. They are tested in house and also by nationally recognized test labs. They are available in a wide configuration of colors and lengths and can be custom labeled and packaged.
