TOUGHCableOverview:

Protect your networks from the most brutal environments with Ubiquiti’s industrial-grade shielded ethernet cable, TOUGHCable.

  • Increase Performance - Dramatically improve your ethernet link states, speeds, and overall performance with Ubiquiti TOUGHCables.
  • Extreme Weatherproof - TOUGHCables have been built to perform even in the harshest weather and environments.
  • ESD Damage Protection - Protect your networks from devastating electrostatic discharge (ESD) attacks.
  • Extended Cable Support - TOUGHCables have been developed to have increased power handling performance for extended cable run lengths.

Bulletproof your networks

TOUGHCable is currently available in two versions: PRO Shielding Protection and CARRIER Shielding Protection.

TOUGHCable PRO is a Category 5e, outdoor, carrier-class shielded cable with an integrated ESD drain wire.

TOUGHCable PRO

TOUGHCable CARRIER is a Category 6, outdoor, carrier-class shielded cable that features an integrated ESD drain wire, anti-crosstalk divider, and secondary shielding. It is rated to provide optimal performance on Gigabit Ethernet networks.

TOUGHCable CARRIER

Additional Information:

  • 24 AWG copper conductor pairs
  • 26 AWG integrated ESD drain wire to prevent ESD attacks and damage
  • PE outdoor-rated, weatherproof jacket
  • Multi-layered shielding
  • Available in lengths of 1000 ft (304.8 m)

TOUGHCable Connectors

Specifically designed for use with Ubiquiti TOUGHCables and available in 100-pc. bags, TOUGHCable Connectors protect against ESD attacks and Ethernet hardware damage while allowing rapid field deployment without soldering.

ESD attacks are the leading cause for device failures. The diagram below illustrates the areas vulnerable to ESD attacks in a network. By using a grounded Ubiquiti Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter along with Ubiquiti TOUGHCable and TOUGHCable Connectors, you can effectively protect against ESD attacks.
