Leviton Cat 6A High Flex patch cords, with a new compact plug and boot, were launched in June 2021.

With a dual rating, they are designed for Low Smoke Zero Halogen and CM applications in all regions of the world. They are designed to be universal, allowing the same cord to work in both shielded and UTP channels.
