Table 9.10 - Near-end cross-talk (NEXT) loss for catedories 3,4 & 5 data cables,
Attenuation is the loss in the data cables and is measured in decibels (dB). The measurements taken for Table 9.10 are made at 16 MHz with a cable temperature of 20oC. The temperature coefficient of resistance indicates that copper cables increase in resistance as the temperature rises. The last column of the Table shows the percentage rise per oC above 20oC.

The percentage loss from input to output for a range of losses in decibels is given in Table 9.13
