Power penalties caused by beat noise in a received optical signal beam were evaluated experimentally and theoretically. It was found that power penalties could be suppressed when the beam relative intensity noise was reduced to less than -135 dB/Hz below 2.4 Gbit/s. This goal can be satisfied using a commercially available physical contact optical connector, which has less than -20 dB reflection.<>
