Know Your Source To Assure Standards-compliant Premises Data Cabling

Noncompliant and counterfeit premises data cabling are raising issues in the marketplace. In fact, UL and Communications Cable & Connectivity Association have sent out alerts. But you can protect yourself, your clients – and your reputation – with easy-to-identify standards-compliant premises data cabling from Superior Essex and Graybar. These products offer special features – such as ColorTip™ Circuit Identification and CableID® – that make it easier to identify them as a standard-compliant premises data cable, and therefore harder to counterfeit.

Remember, one of the best ways to protect yourself from purchasing substandard, non-compliant products is to know your source. Your Graybar representative has complete information.
