Champlain Cable Corporation prepares to equip Navy fleet with 5x faster data transmission

(Colchester, VT) Champlain Cable Corporation, America’s leading developer and producer of wire and cable for extreme conditions and applications, has successfully passed all Navy tests required of NAVSEA’s Quality Product List. Pending NAVSEA’s final approval, Champlain Cable will be listed on the Qualified Product Listing status with the U.S. Navy for their latest secure Data Communication Cable, developed specially for the U.S. Naval Fleet: MIL-DTL 24643C Slant “77” CAT 6A. These cables, which allow for data and communication secure transmittal at a stunning rate of 5x faster than the CAT 5e currently used, meet and exceed the rigorous requirements specified in MIL-DTL24643. Additionally, they can be installed without changing existing connections or the cable envelope for a quick and effective transition. Champlain Cable will be the first company to qualify for this approval, which enhances the Navy’s on-board data transmittal capabilities for all U.S. Naval vessels, ultimately saving the lives of our U.S. fighting men and women around the world.

Champlain Cable Director of Market & Product Development Jack Griffin said, “Champlain Cable was the first to produce category cable that met military specs back in 2008. Now we are continuing our legacy of innovation for the military with CAT 6A cables, which are groundbreaking for their ability to deliver improved and fully protected communication performance, meeting fireproof ratings, toxicity requirements and safety standards. It’s an honor for us to help bring the Navy fleet to the cutting edge of communication technology and into the future, and to equip their vessels with the safest, most effective cable available.”
