Even with the current trend toward wireless communications, the evolution of wire, cable and connector products continues. Today, the efficient transmission of audio and video signals alongside (and sometimes encoded as) data communications is as crucial as ever. Take a look at our selection of product innovations in these building blocks of the systems integration industry. There's even an enclosure for WiFi systems here. Just goes to show you that even wireless needs a little help from cable at some point in the chain.
