Reduce Alien Crosstalk: Differential Mode and Common Mode Signals

If you have been perusing our blog for some time, then it’s no mystery to you: Many components make up the infrastructure that supports your network – from cables to connectors – and they all have to follow relevant standards, be well designed and be properly installed in order for your network to function like you need it to.

Cable imbalance, which can lower immunity to interference – can increase alien crosstalk between adjacent cables to levels that are beyond recommendations, negatively impacting network performance. Every component of a cabling system has the potential to effect alien crosstalk performance and compromise cabling system quality. The cables and how they are connected can have a major impact on data transmission. It’s one of several reasons why it is crucial to use the appropriate cables and connectors.
