Title: Low crosstalk modular communication connector

Abstract: A modular communications connector including a housing defining a plug receiving opening, a conductor carrying sled including a printed circuit board designed in conjunction with a specific conductor design having two sets of contacts, one running under the printed circuit board and the other running over the top of the printed circuit board s to improve crosswalk performance. The connector further includes a wire containment fixture arrangement allowing for simplified field termination of the modular connector. The connector is assembled by loading the contacts and printed circuit board onto the sled which is snap fit into the housing, positioning wires through the wire containment fixture and slidably engaging the fixture to the sled to terminate the wires.
