What is BNC connector?

A series of connectors used for connecting thinnet coaxial cabling to various networking components. BNC connectors use a twist-and-lock mechanism that provides a secure connection between network cabling and components. BNC connectors are typically used on 10Base2 Ethernet networks. The different types of BNC connectors include the following:

  • BNC cable connector:
    Soldered or crimped to the ends of a thinnet cable

     

  • BNC T-connector:
    Used to connect a network interface card (NIC) to a thinnet cable segment

     

  • BNC barrel connector:
    Used to connect two pieces of thinnet cable

     

  • BNC terminator:
    Provides a 50-ohm termination for the free end of a thinnet cable
Network must have two BNC terminators, one BNC T connector per workstation, two BNC cable connector per workstation.
