Extends Cable Reach in Indoor and Outdoor Environments - ISC West 2023 Booth 7064

MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ, July 27, 2022 – Paige Datacom Solutions announced an upgraded GameChanger® Outside Plant (OSP) Shielded Cable, a superior direct burial solution that can streamline the installation of outdoor devices, including cameras and wireless access points. Paige’s GameChanger significantly exceeds the reach of traditional category cable and now the OSP shielded cable can extend through multiple environments.

“Our customers were asking for a single solution that would take them from inside the building, to the outdoors, underground and up light poles – so they can hang cameras or access points without adding complications and costs to their installation,” said David Coleman, VP of business development for Paige. “This is an all-in-one solution that will make their life easier.”

The upgraded GameChanger OSP Shielded Cable achieves these capabilities through multiple enhancements, including a CM listing, which removes the limitation of running beyond 50 feet indoors, and with its 600V AWM rating, it can be used where power cables are present, such as light poles. The upgraded cable also includes a “non-sticky” gel-filled core, which blocks water and prevents a degradation of performance in wet, outdoor environments.

"For those who need a low cost, simple solution to put outdoor cameras and Wi-Fi access points up, this really is a game changer," added David Coleman. “With one cable, you can install a point-to-point solution that does not require boosters, electronics, transitions or separations."  Additionally, the cable’s designation as a low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) product, makes it possible to use in applications like a tunnel or a transit facility.

Launched in 2017, Paige’s GameChanger Cable is available globally and used by many of the world’s leading systems integrators in a wide range of applications, including airports, hospitals, parking structures and retail facilities. Paige’s GameChanger Cable delivers 1Gb/s Ethernet and PoE+ up to 656 feet (200 meters) and 10Mb/s Ethernet and PoE+ up to 850 feet, eliminating intermediate IDF requirements and the need to install repeaters, power supplies and other equipment. It is also supported by the field performance testing solutions of leading vendors, including AEM, Fluke, Ideal, Netscout, Softing and Viavi.

The part number for the upgraded GameChanger OSP Shielded Cable is 258340804, the same as the previous version of OSP Shielded Cable. It is available through major security distributors, including ADI, Anixter/WESCO and ScanSource.
