Apart from the 'new cable', I think the real news is the claim of possible damages due to ESD and it confirms the doubts about the reliability of the LAN connector (see ubnt forum about LAN port issues).

This is not a "new" cable except maybe for them as a product. It is simply a foiled twisted pair cable with a drain wire. The Ubiquiti POE devices when used with an FTP cable of any brand will provide ESD protection on the device. We use all UBNT product on our WISP and this is how we have always installed them.

I will say that the price on the cable from UBNT is very competitive as are all of their offerings.
