HARRISBURG, Pa., April 19, 2013 – Legrand, the leader in connected home systems, today announced an expansion of its comprehensive line of networking solutions, including an extensive selection of advanced Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 6a cables and accessories, all designed and manufactured to specifications exceeding the industry’s highest testing standards
