NORTH ANDOVER, MA - L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has won the 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award put on by TMC. This award recognizes the most innovative new products that facilitate voice, data, and video communications, or combinations of them. This is L-com's first time winning this award.
The award was specifically given for L-com's Category 6 right angle Ethernet cable assemblies. These cables use patent-pending technology to ensure the twisted pairs within the cable do not untwist in the sharp right angle at the connector end, thus passing Category 6 10/100/1000Base-T qualifications. Sharp bends in Ethernet cables at the connection point are one of the biggest factors in slowing the high-speed Ethernet connection, and can occur at drop points and in crowded wiring closets.
In January, 2012, Electronic House Magazine awarded its own Product of the Year honor to L-com's Category 5e right angle Ethernet cables. Both awards reflect the ingenuity of the right angle technology in unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) and shielded twisted-pair (STP) cabling. The original right angle design was debuted by L-com in 2010 and has since inspired a growing list of right angle products, including several USB and Audio/Video cables.
"Our aim at L-com is to provide the best service and solutions available in the connectivity market today," said Chris Long, Senior VP of Marketing and Ecommerce. "When a company stands out in this industry for its ingenuity and technology, TMC has taken upon itself to recognize that company. Today, we are pleased they have recognized us."
"L-com was chosen to receive a 2011 Product of the Year Award for creating outstanding advancements in communications," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "The Category 6 right angle cables have proven benefits for their users and provide ROI for the companies that use them. Congratulations to the entire team at L-com. I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the coming year."
L-com has won several awards in recent months, and has already won more awards in 2012 than any year prior. For achieving this award, L-com will be listed on the INTERNET TELEPHONY and Customer Interaction Solutions websites and e-newsletters.
