I have to extend a demarcation for a DS3 connection coming into the building over Coax. I was told to run two RG59 cables and terminate using BNC male ends.
I'm running RG59/u 20 AWG copper core at 75 ohms with 95% braid. I believe that is what I need to use for the wiring.
I was just wondering if anyone knows what the proper termination / specification is for the BNC. Do I terminate using 75 Ohm male BNC or use unrated regular BNC? I'm pretty sure I use 75 ohm termination. The telco hasn't been much help since it is my responsibility to extend the demarcation.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
RG59/u is correct cabling. Which distance you have? You can also find twin micro-coax for ease on laying. The connector doesn't really matter as long good quality and the crimping job is done properly.
