Product Migration Options

The recommended replacement for the Dual-shield RF cable kit bundle is the Quad-shield RF cable kit bundle for the MC5x20 line cards. The Quad-shield cable has passed the conductive immunity tests as required by the European Union. In addition, it also provides significant margin improvement over the Dual-shield RF cable in radiated emission testing. The new Quad-shield RF cable has the same color-coding scheme as the Dual-shield RF cable to ease customer deployment.
