February 17, 2023 Kordz Receives Two Prestigious Awards for New PRO SlimCat™ Network Cable System at ISE 2023

Released February 13, 2023

Recognised for its thin, flexible design, remarkable installation ease, and support of the latest Cat 6 connectivity standards, Kordz’s PRO SlimCat™ System takes home the TNT award from CE Pro and Best of Show honors from Sound & Video Contractor.  

Multi-award-winning professional-grade cabling manufacturer Kordz brings home from ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) 2023 the coveted TNT (Top New Technologies) award from CE Pro and Best of Show honors from Sound & Video Contractor for its game-changing PRO SlimCat™ line of Cat 6 cable and components. Comprising bulk-reducing 4mm diameter Cat 6 cable and specially designed RJ45 crimp connectors and RJ45 keystone sockets, PRO SlimCat™ delivers robust, compact end-to-end connectivity and installs faster and easier than other Cat 6 solutions. Kordz’s PRO SlimCat™ System was selected by a distinguished panel of judges as the most innovative residential networking technology and was presented the TNT award by CE Pro at Integrated Systems Europe in Barcelona, January 31-February 3. Later at ISE, Kordz picked up Best of Show honors from the editors of Sound & Video Contractor. 

Developed to streamline installation of networking systems in smaller spaces or where retrofitting cable is difficult, PRO SlimCat™ fills a void in the industry while supporting 100W PoE++ and delivering 1Gbps network connectivity up to 50 meters. “Structured cabling is a mature and saturated market, so we decided to approach the category differently by developing a complete Category 6 networking system of products that takes up significantly less space and can reach areas that other cabling solutions can’t,” says James Chen, Kordz Managing Director. “The diameter of the unshielded 28AWG SlimCat™ cable is half the size of 23AWG and 24AWG network cable and highly flexible with a 32mm bend radius to snake easily and without damage around corners and other roadblocks.” 

“The Top New Technology Awards program recognises innovation being shown at ISE, which has become one of the most important global technology events. The TNT Awards represent product engineering at the highest level, which Kordz continues to demonstrate with its unique and versatile solutions,” says CE Pro executive editor Arlen Schweiger. “CE Pro congratulates Kordz on their well-deserved award for the PRO SlimCat™ cabling system!” 

Adds the judges from the Best of Show editorial team, “ISE seems to grow in popularity and attendance each year and with that, the competition in our awards becomes even fiercer. This year, we received a record number of entries, which means that those who won should be extremely proud of their achievement—their product showed true innovation and hugely impressed our judging panel.” 

“We are honored to be recognised by CE Pro and Sound & Video Contractor for our new PRO SlimCat™ line of Cat 6 cabling products and extremely proud to provide systems integrators with a powerful, reliable networking solution that not only performs exceptionally well but simplifies installation tremendously,” Chen continues. “Winning both the TNT and Best of Show awards this year at ISE are monumental achievements and a well-deserved tribute to our outstanding engineering and design team that consistently push the boundaries of technological innovation to create some of the world’s finest cabling products. Our revolutionary PRO SlimCat™ system is a representation of Kordz’s commitment to excellence and leading-edge networking solutions.”
