Released September 9, 2023

Recognised for its thin, flexible design, remarkable installation ease, and support of the latest Cat6/6a connectivity standards, Kordz’ PRO and PRS SlimCat™ Network Cable Systems receive Best awards from CE Pro and Residential Systems.   

Multi-award-winning professional-grade cabling manufacturer Kordz adds two more awards to the trophy cabinet for its game-changing PRO and PRS SlimCat™ line of Cat6/6a cable and components. This revolutionary cabling system was recogniszed by both CE Pro as Best Product in the Cable & Cabling Product category and Residential Systems as Best of Show. 

The backbone of PRO and PRS SlimCat Network Cable Systems is an industry-leading 28AWG Cat6/6a cable that’s half the cross-sectional size of ordinary 23AWG and 24AWG network cable, making it remarkably flexible, and it comes with matching RJ45 crimp connectors and RJ45 keystone sockets for a complete, end-to-end networking solution. The unique cable design of PRO and PRS SlimCat facilitates faster, easier, less invasive installation, especially in retrofit and high-density environments. Reliable and robust, the PRO and PRS SlimCat line supports 100W PoE++ technology and delivers 1Gbps and 10Gbps network connectivity, respectively, up to 50 metres.  

“Structured cabling is a mature and saturated market, so we decided to approach the category differently by developing complete Category 6 and Category 6a networking systems that take up significantly less space and can reach areas that other cabling solutions can’t,” says James Chen, Kordz Managing Director. “PRO and PRS SlimCat exemplify the overarching mission of Kordz—to make the lives of our dealers easier.”  

“The annual CE Pro awards program recognises innovation shown at CEDIA Expo, which has become one of the world’s most important technology events. Products that earn its Best honours symbolise engineering and design 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 Network Cable System!” 

Adds the judges from the Best of Show editorial team, “CEDIA Expo is the launching pad for some of the most innovative product introductions on the planet from manufacturers representing a wide range of residential markets. The Best in Show competition is always fierce and this year was no exception. To be selected from such a diverse and exceptional pool of products is a high achievement—Kordz’ SlimCat showed true innovation and hugely impressed our judging panel.” 

“We are honoured to be recognised by CE Pro and Residential Systems for our new PRO and PRS SlimCat™ line of Cat6/6a 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 CE Pro Best and Residential Systems Best of Show awards this year at CEDIA Expo are monumental achievements and a much appreciated tribute to our outstanding engineering and design team that consistently pushes the boundaries of technological innovation to create some of the world’s finest cabling products.”
