Evaluating connectors for gigabit and 10-gigabit ethernet in military and aerospace applications.

Abstract

As military and aerospace application move toward Gigabit and 10G networks, standard military connector technology has not kept pace. To evaluate the suitability of various connectors, we tested differential near-end crosstalk in links containing a traditional MIL-DTL-38999 connector and two connectors from TE Connectivity (TE) designed specifically for gigabit and 10G applications.
