Data cabling is designed to connect a few different devices, such as printers, servers, or even cameras, throughout a certain IT infrastructure. There are a couple of different types of cables, copper and fiber. Each cable comes with various different grades that result in varying standards.
These data cables are often housed in a box near the intended device. They originate from the nucleus of the network infrastructure in a communication box. One of the main differences between the two different types of cables is that fiber cables can be run for longer distances, therefore, they are more versatile, and used to connect various device cabinets, while the copper cables are utilized more for connecting one specific connection. There are also a few different grades of data cabling, such as CAT5e and CAT6.
Coaxial network cabling is are often used to transmit radio frequencies. Coaxial network cabling is designed with an insulating layer, conducting shield, and an insulating outer shield. They are often used for internet systems, connecting to a modem to transmit a wifi signal through an ethernet cable to the router.
Coaxial network cabling is often ideal for internet and cable applications within close proximity to each other, such as using these applications within the same building. These types of network cables are able to transmit frequencies evenly at similar speeds, making them ideal for internet and cable applications.
