    I have heard these called a Bayonet Nut Connector, a British Naval Connector, and a Bayonet Neill Concelman. Is one of these acronyms either preferred, or industrially accepted as correct? More importantly, will I be graded down on courseworks/assignments for using a particular one?

    Thanks Tripwire. Here's what my bloody course book (N+) says:

    No reference to right/wrong/other names.

    BNC has changed it's meaning over the years to the point where everyone calls it by a different name. I call a BNC a British Naval Connector others call it a Bayonet Nut/Naval Connector. There are no right or wrong names for it and in some books it's one thing and in others it's another. You shouldn't get marked down for calling it by another name.

    I suppose I should have been clearer on this. I've never actually heard anyone refer to a BNC connector by any other name than a "BNC connector". I doubt the name issue will even come up on the Network+ exam.
