What Is Network Cabling?
Every business network is made up of multiple devices, which are connected via network cables. While the term “network cabling” is fairly broad, each network is unique and requires a cabling method that tailors to the size of the business, the building and the network itself.
What Are the Different Types of Cabling?
Data cabling is, technically, any mode capable of transferring data. This can be seen with coaxial cables, Ethernet cables and fiber cables. This is also referred to as network cabling.
Structured cabling is the most commonly used and standardized method of cabling. It is low-maintenance and easy to repair when necessary. Often, structured cabling uses copper and fiber optic cables.
Component cabling builds a bridge for end-user devices, such as phones and printers, to connect to larger networks.
How Do You Choose the Right Cable Type?
There are four different cables to choose from, each one unique in its function.
Unshielded Twisted Pairs
UTPs are the most affordable and commonly used cables.
Shielded Twisted Pairs
STPs are a step up from UTPs, with a guard that protects the cables from electronic interference.
Coaxial cables are certainly the most durable data cables, making them reliable over long distances.
Fiber Optic Cables
Fiber optic cables are extremely fast, secure and can transmit data over the greatest distance. However, unlike coaxial cables, fiber optic cables are very delicate.
