network cables explained

You might have heard the term “network cabling” most often than not, but you might not be sure what it exactly entails, what functions it performs, and how all its processes take place. Well, you are in a right place to get answers to all these questions in this blog.

Firstly, let us understand what refers to “network cabling”. As the term itself suggests, it takes care of the networking processes within your business organizations or household through various cables. Its role is to create communication and connection between various network devices to enhance efficient communication services. They are a network hardware connecting two or more printers, computers, or scanners, etc. Various networking cables include optical fiber cables, coaxial cables, and twisted pair cables, and they are used depending on the nature of demand of a certain physical space. To separate these devices in limited distances (of a few meters), ethernet is used. On the other hand, to separate devices for unlimited distances, they are connected through interconnections of the internet. 

Now, let us briefly explain the functions of network cables: 

Optical Fiber Cables: They consist of a glass core layered with a certain protective material. Its deployment is expensive as compared to that of copper cables, but its main advantage is its higher bandwidth and ability to cover longer physical distances. Its two major types include multi-mode fiber for shorter range and single-mode fiber for longer range. 

Coaxial Cables: They are a type of copper cables that deal with blockage of signal interference and other such components. They are called coaxial because they contain one physical channel (covered with a layer of insulation) along with another concentric physical channel while both running along the same axis. They have a transmission line where the electromagnetic wave

confines the center conductor and the shield. The energy transmits through dielectric present inside the cables. They are mostly used for broadband signals and television

Twisted Pair Cables: They consist of four thin wire pairs/conductors, which are present in the outer cable sheath or in the insulation. There are various twists in each of these pairs that prevent from interfering with other devices to enhance smooth communication. These cables are used mostly in ethernet networks. 

These are all the main advantages and benefits of using network cabling. If you have any further queries or want to explore about other types and advantages of networking cables, please reach out to us, and we will offer a suitable solution depending on your requirement.
