|1000-T Jitter Test Channel||Jon Beckwith||
Subclause 220.127.116.11.1 of the IEEE 802.3 Standard defines a test channel to be used in the testing of the jitter on the reference clock of 1000BASE-T devices. The channel consists of two short segments of 120m UTP Category 5 compliant cable, along with one (or two, if necessary) long (the exact length is dependent upon the attenuation of the entire channel) segment of 100m UTP Category 5 compliant cable. The channel is to meet or exceed the insertion loss, crosstalk, and return loss requirements as specified in clause 40.7. The objective of this paper is to outline and describe, in detail, the specifications defined in subclause 18.104.22.168.1 of the IEEE 802.3-2002 standard for the Jitter Test Channel, and observe the results of the testing of a completed test channel. Included are plots, outlining the characteristics of the constructed test channel, along with the limits of each specific test.

|Auto-Negotiation Technology Overview||Spencer Janelle||
As defined by the IEEE 802.3 Working Group, Auto-Negotiation is the process that Ethernet Devices use to identify and resolve the highest possible link between two devices. In simplified terms, Auto-Negotiation aids a user in finding the highest and most efficient operating speed for their system. Learn more about Auto-Negotiation in this overview paper written by Spencer Janelle, UNH-IOL Test Technician, CS, 2022.

|Making Auto-Negotiation & Link Training Reliable and Why It Matters||Kae Dube, UNH-IOL & Joshua Harsch & Craig Foster, Teledyne LeCroy||Learn about Auto-Negotiation (ANEG) and Link Training (LT) by looking at common issues folks may run into during testing. Successful ANEG and LT have shown to reduce overall installation time while minimizing the risk of ongoing mistakes. This video will cover an introduction to ANEG: Why it’s used and how it's implemented, how ANEG reduces time for manual configuration and minimizes 'mistakes' and much more!||Tutorials||August 31, 2022|
