New comment[edit]

"Straight Twinax cables can go up to 5,000 feet (1,500 m) or 1 mile (1.6 km)" 5000 feet is roughly one mile, but 1500m = 1.5km. The original article says 5000 feet, which is shy of a mile (5280 ft). Jaf1230 (talk) 00:10, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Unclear length[edit]

Straight Twinax cables can go up to 5,000 feet (1,500 m) or 1 mile (1.6 km).

1500m = 1.5km. Later it says 1.6km, 100m difference. What's right? --Poc (talk) 22:41, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Need picture[edit]

This article needs a picture or two. I can't immediately find the template one uses to request pictures. --Kvng (talk) 15:22, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Need a reference for the latency benefit of twinax over Cat6[edit]

The article claims twinax can reduce the latency by 1.5 us. But that is basically an entire packet time at 10G. This seems crazy. I think we need a reference? I think it would also be good to have a reference showing the power benefits (.1W versus 4 to 8W), although that does not seem so crazy. Curtbeckmann (talk) 23:27, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

10GBASE-T uses sophisticated signal processing which allows it to run over CAT5 cable but which introduces latency. The latency doesn't come from the cable, it comes from the encoding and decoding. --Kvng (talk) 19:48, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

cross-section pictures[edit]

Please add cable cross-section pictures and diagrams. -71.174.178.251 (talk) 22:50, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
