The Rosenberger MTD® Connection System is an industry standard* Ethernet transmission system for optimized jacketed Twisted-Pair cables. Its excellent transmission and electrical performance, reduced weight, size and cost benefits have set new standards for 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps single connection Ethernet implementation in vehicles.     

Compared to other solutions currently available a key advantage of Rosenberger’s new connection system is the impedance-controlled transition area from cable to connector interface. Its small size in combination with several coding features allows multiple wire pairs to be placed in close proximity ensuring installation space is kept to a minimum. Furthermore, the honeycomb structure provides low crosstalk, good symmetry and can be extended modularly. 

*MTD® fulfills channel requirements in terms of adaptation, symmetry and cross talk according to 100BASE-T1, 1000BASE-T1 (for 1-way connection), OPEN Alliance TC2 and BroadR-Reach® Spec 3.2.
