Definition
BASE-T is telephone twisted pair wire that is specified in the IEEE 802.3 standard for Ethernet LANs (Local Area Networks). The leading number (10 in 10BASE-T) refers to the transmission speed in Mbit/s. BASE denotes that baseband transmission is used. The T designates twisted pair cable, where the pair of wires for each signal is twisted together to reduce radio frequency interference and crosstalk between pairs.
