1 3M Telecommunications Solutions for Networks Volition Network Solutions Leading the way in Network Migration through Innovative Connectivity Solutions Innovation

2 The Broadband Migration Path 3M TM Volition TM Network Solutions In less than 10 years, network speeds have increased from less than 10 Mbps to gigabit speeds. With the approval of IEEE s Higher Speed Study Group s 10 Gigabit Ethernet standard, industry experts predict that fibre will accelerate its migration into traditionally copper horizontal cabling in advanced premises networks. In response to these advances, companies are building highspeed fibre optic backbones and extending fibre further toward the workstation. For many businesses, that involves migrating from an existing copper network to a hybrid or fibre optic network. Many network managers now view the cost difference between copper and fibre optics as small enough to make fibre-to-the-desktop a viable option. Others have developed a more traditional strategy using high-speed copper wiring with the capability to make a rapid transition to fibre in the future. Whether you re considering a copper network, a fibre network, or a hybrid, 3M Volition Network Solutions provide a proven, totally seamless and uniquely economical way to build it. 3M Volition Network Solutions 3M Volition Network Solutions are composed of the Volition Cabling System (copper and fibre), and a range of complementary networking hardware. With this product range, that can be used in combination for virtually every application, 3M Volition Network Solutions will provide you with a clear migration path towards broadband. Copper Provides for conventional LAN distributed structured cabling, SOHO, residential and other short distance applications supporting networks up to 10 Gbps (10 GBASE-T). Multimode Fibre Media of choice for building back-bones, centralized fibre networks, and data or system area networks where legacy or future bandwidth-intensive applications are considered. Singlemode Fibre The ultimate media solution for very high-speed transmission rates and longer distances ranging from a few to a thousand metres; addresses existing and anticipated rapid growth in network traffic volume. Volition VF-45 Patch Cord Volition Wall Outlet for 2 x VF-45 Sockets Complete LAN solutions for copper, hybrid and fibre optic networks. If you ve been thinking of building your network, you re considering current and future costs, component compatibility and the implications of a transition from a copper or hybrid network to fibre optics. At 3M, we ve given over 40 years of serious thought to networks and how to make them better. With 3M Volition Network Solutions, we have focused our efforts on reducing the total cost of cabling infrastructure through innovations such as the Volition VF-45 fibre interconnect, the Volition RJ45 K5e and K6 copper jacks and high strength fibre cable to future-proof even the most advanced network applications. When you choose 3M Volition Network Solutions, you no longer have to worry about increased costs or downtime resulting from compatibility or transition issues. With 3M Volition Network Solutions, you can migrate gradually and economically from a copper to a fibre optic network without a major upgrade.

3 Whatever your Broadband Migration Path, 3M TM Volition TM Network Solutions have the Right Networking Answer A distributed network In the conventional distributed structured cabling design, backbone cable is optical fibre, with the horizontal segment of the network typically comprising twisted-pair copper cable or optical fibre cable. Backbone cables in an interbuilding network travel from a main cross-connect (Distributor) to one or more horizontal cross-connects within the telecommunication rooms on each floor, which includes active electronics equipment such as routers or switches. Floor Distributor - Telecommunication Room Switch - Patch Panel Copper Fibre Active Main Distributor - Equipment Room Master Switch - Patch Panel PABX Inter-building Backbone Cable Horizontal Cable Volition VF-45 to LC Patch Cord Volition

4 A centralized network Optical fibre s unlimited bandwidth and ability to carry data over long distances is best utilized in centralized networks. Centralized networks have more unblocked bandwidth than distributed networks and are therefore better suited for combined voice, video and data traffic requiring quality of service implementation. Optical fibre eliminates intermediate closets, thus simplifying network layout and reducing overall system cost. A centralized network is the most efficient and costeffective way to implement fibre-to-the-desk. Fibre Active Splice box Bundle Backbone Cable Volition VF-45 Patch Cords Campus Backbone Cable Main Distributor - Equipment Room Master Switch - Patch Panel PABX Horizontal Cable Passive or active Consolidation Point Backbone Cable Passive or active Consolidation Point Campus Backbone Cable Zone distribution Moves, adds or changes in an open-office environment can be accommodated quickly and efficiently through consolidation points by combining permanent feeder cabling with preterminated plug-and-play extender cables associated with the work area. Providing connectivity closer to end-users not only adds flexibility, but also reduces network downtime and re-cabling needs, which can resulting in significant cost savings.

5 Leading the way in Network Migration Fibre optic and copper network solutions Our Volition Cabling Systems: everything you need for fibre-to-the-desktop The fibre version of 3M Volition Cabling Systems is the first cost-effective, standards-compliant alternative to a conventional copper distributed cabling system. And with the speed and bandwidth to deliver up to 10 Gbps of voice, video and data over a single cable, it s the last network solution you will ever need. 3M Volition Cabling Systems feature the breakthrough Volition VF-45 fibre connector design, specified by various standards as the SG interconnect. The small form factor Volition VF-45 has the same look, feel and footprint as the familiar Volition RJ45, at a fraction of the cost and twice the port density of traditional fibre connectors. The Volition VF-45 duplex connector features unsurpassed ease-of-use, reliability and performance. The fibre optic networking system includes a complete product portfolio, including cable for network backbones and closet-to-desktop horizontal wiring, patch cords, media converters, patch panels and outlets. Our 3M Volition Cabling Systems set the standard in fibre optic networks 3M Volition Cabling Systems are standards compliant and meet or exceed the performance requirements of ANSI/ TIA/EIA 568, ISO/IEC and EN50173 cabling, as well as specifications outlined in the IEEE Ethernet, Fibre Channel and ATM Forum networking standards. The Volition VF-45 TM connector is specified by the Fibre Channel and ATM Forum and is standardized by the ANSI/TIA/EIA, IEC and CENELEC EN , as the SG, Small Form Factor connector interface. Our ISO 9000 certified manufacturing results in exceptional product performance and reliability, supported by a comprehensive 20 year extended product warranty. Our 3M Volition Networking Hardware enables easy deployment of bandwidth in building over fibre It includes a cost-effective range of media-converters and NIC cards based on the Volition VF-45 interconnect. Volition RJ45 K6 Jacks Connect and protect with 3M Telecommunications Volition RJ45 Cat 6 Patch Cables 3M brings innovative solutions to customer problems through a complete line of connecting and protecting products that meet specifications for use in both outside plant and premises applications.
