"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)

Need a reference for the latency benefit of twinax over Cat6
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)
