Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A connectorized media cable includes at least one primary media segment; a first plug connector coupled to a first end of the media segment; and a second plug connector coupled to the second end of the media segment. Each plug connector includes a storage device having memory configured to store physical layer information pertaining to the cable. The storage device also includes at least four contacts that are electrically connected to the memory and isolated from the primary media segment. Certain types of cables include an electrical conductor extending along the media cable between a fourth one of the contacts of the first plug connector and a fourth one of the contacts of the second plug connector. The plug connectors of other types of cables have two data contacts coupled to the memory.
