Which cables are which?

It’s important to be aware of what kind of cabling you are using to connect your data network. It can make a significant difference if you are using, for instance, fiber optic cable vs. low-voltage data cable to connect your business network – both internally, and to the outside world.

In some cases, a network will utilize only one type of cable, where other networks will use a variety of cable types. The type of cable chosen for a network is related to the network’s topology, protocol, and size. Understanding the characteristics of different types of cable and how they relate to other aspects of a network is necessary for developing a successful network.
