Types of Networking Cable used in Fort Worth Texas
From mom-and-pops to Fortune 100s, a smartly designed and installed network cabling solution serves as the backbone of business, providing the connectivity needed to get work done. If you are looking for an installation solution, it is important to know the various types of network cabling available and what uses they are designed for. Here is a quick rundown of the cables that are most commonly used for network cabling in Fort Worth Texas:
Unshielded/Shielded Twisted Pair
This is the type of cable used for many Ethernet networks. Inside the cable are four cable pairs. There is a thick plastic separator that keeps each pair isolated through the cable run. Each pair of cables is twisted so that there is no interference from other devices that are on the same network. The pairs are also twisted at different intervals so they do not cause interference between themselves.
- CAT1 is used for the telephone connection.
- CAT2 supports speeds up to 4 Mbps and is widely used for token-ring networks.
- CAT3 and CAT4 are used for Token Ring networks for higher network speeds.
- CAT5 cable is now replaced by CAT5e designs that provide an improved interference specification that allows it to support speeds of up to 1 Gbps. This is the world’s most used network cabling.
- CAT6 support speeds of 1 Gbps for length up to 100 meters and 10 Gbps up to 55 meters.
- The CAT7 is a new copper wire pattern that can support speeds of 10 Gbps and a length of up to 100 meters.
Fiber Optic Cabling
The fiber optic cable is used mainly as a backbone cable, although it is used more and more as a station cable (think FIOS). By backbone cable, it means it connects Telecommunication Rooms within a space to each other. The fiber optic cable has huge broadband capabilities that allow it to carry large amounts of information as super-fast speeds. Fiber cables can cover large distances, unlike copper cable.
The coaxial cable generally falls within the scope of the work of the network cabling installation contractor. Coaxial will be used for cable television locations within the space you are wiring. The center of this type of cable has a copper conductor and a plastic sheath that serves as an insulator between the conductor and the metal shield. This cable is covered with a coating which thickness can vary. The thicker the coating, the less flexible it will be.
