A signal conditioning system for a distributed antenna network includes a donor antenna in a first location receiving a downlink radio frequency signal from a radio frequency source. A service antenna is in a second location different from the first location, wherein the service antenna transmits the downlink radio frequency signal to an end user device, and the end user device transmits an uplink radio frequency signal back to the service antenna. Separate gain control amplifiers process the uplink and downlink signals and are located at the separate first and second locations to reduce thermal noise in the uplink and downlink signals. Reduced thermal noise allows quality transmission over optical fibers in addition to coaxial cables. First and second microcontrollers at the first and second locations control respective attenuators and transmit power level data to remote computer processors.


There is provided a communication connector including a housing and a plurality of electrical contacts received by the housing. A printed circuit board (PCB) is provided and includes at least first and second pairs of electrical conductive traces. The first pair of traces is connected to a first pair of contacts. The second pair of traces is connected to a second pair of contacts. The PCB has first and second regions. The first pair of contacts is located in the first region and the second pair of contacts is located in the second region. The PCB further includes at least a first ground plane. The first ground plane has first and second sections. The first and second sections are electrically isolated from one another. At least a portion of the first section being adjacent to at least a portion of the first pair of traces. At least a portion of the second section is adjacent to at least a portion of the second pair of traces whereby signal transmission is enhanced. A layer of dielectric material which has a relatively low dielectric constant is located between the first and second traces and the first ground plane.

A jack assembly includes a top face and a bottom face defining a cavity there between for receiving a plug. The jack assembly includes a printed circuit board extending between the top and bottom faces of the jack assembly. At least one spring contact is connected to the printed circuit board and extends into the cavity. The spring contact defines a flexible curvature along a length of the spring contact, and the printed circuit board connects to the jack assembly at a pivot point allowing for angular rotation of the printed circuit board within the cavity. The angular rotation allows the jack assembly to absorb stress forces on the spring contacts. Secondary springs may be included in the jack assembly to further absorb spring contact stress forces.
