Berk-Tek has been a leading manufacturer of more than 100 different network copper and fiber optic cable products. The company has led in the development of high-performance and enhanced fiber optic and UTP cables designed to transport high-speed data and voice transmissions.

Key Solutions

  • Copper Cabling for LANs
  • Fiber Optic LAN Cable
  • OneReach PoE Extender System
  • Own the Link warranteed end-to-end fiber link



With 1,500 feet of cable in each box, versus standard 1,000 ft boxes, smartPAK delivers the convenience and ease of use of a traditional pull-box with the additional benefits of 50% more cable. A 1,500 ft box virtually eliminates cable scrap when installing standards compliant 90 meter horizontal cable runs or even “typical“ 45 meter runs.

  • More efficient installations
    • More cable pulls per box
    • Fewer box change-overs
    • Fewer boxes to breakdown or recycle
    • Fewer boxes to handle or transport
  • Reduction in jobsite waste
    • 10%-15% reduction in cardboard per 1,000 feet
  • All core UTP plenum and riser products are available in all colors
    • LANmark-1000 | LANmark-6
    • LANmark-350 | Hyper Plus 5e

Take Power over Ethernet and Gigabit capability to new distances.

You can rely on Berk-Tek’s OneReach to transmit both power and gigabit data to distances previously unreachable with conventional Power over Ethernet solutions. Combining optical fiber for long-distance gigabit data transmission and copper conductors in a single system takes PoE to 3,600 feet and PoE+ to 2,400 feet! The One Reach System from Berk-Tek provides extended distance connectivity to any IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at device.

The traditional method of protecting your optical fiber cable usually means installing innerduct or expensive conduit and then pulling your cable.

Not any more. The Solution: Armor-Tek

With a rugged, armored design delivering 10 to 13 times the crush resistance of standard fiber optic cable, Armor-Tek interlocked armor fiber cables are ideal for campus & building backbones, data centers and industrial applications.There is also a more practical use for these well engineered fiber cables.

A cost-effective alternative to conduit or plenum innerduct.

Armor-Tek fiber cables can be installed instead of traditional fiber cables in plenum innerduct or conduit. This provides the installer with a user-friendly, one-pull solution to an expensive and labor-intensive installation process. By installing Armor-Tek fiber cables instead of plenum innerduct or conduit, savings can run from 25-50% in materials, and reduce costly installation time and labor costs as much as 60%—a significant advantage over traditional installation methods. Plus, Armor-Tek fiber cables are not governed by fill ratios because they are UL listed as cable assemblies, allowing a higher concentration of cables in an area compared to conduit. And because they can be outdoor/indoor rated, and are extremely durable, Armor-Tek is an excellent choice for campus environments, too.

Armor-Tek makes the inevitable changes easier.

Armor-Tek fiber cables can also provide outstanding flexibility for modifications, alterations and changes, (MACs) as well as relocations, pathway changes or design modifications after the cable has been pulled, something conduit cannot easily accommodate.

Own the Link Transceivers

Traditionally, transceivers have been purchased from equipment manufacturers. But since a transceiver’s performance has more to do with the cabling than the equipment, shouldn’t they be specified together? This simplifies the supply chain and maintenance of the entire link.
