 Question by Tom Rajnicek posted 09 Jan 2002
I have need to extend a DS3 from the demarcation
point to another room where the multiplexors will
be. Can you tell me the maximum length that I can
extend the DS3 without performance problems?

Dear Tom,
The actual maximum line distance over 75 ohm BNC interface could be anywhere from 0 to 450 feet. I would advise you to check with your multiplexer's manual though. The multiplexer may have short and long line settings. So you should be able to tell the distances for either one from the manual.
