Did you know there is such a thing as fake network cabling? For many years businesses have been installing cheap network cabling without realising its not the real thing. Cheap network cable called CCA or Copper Clad Aluminium is widely used for Cat5 or Cat6 networks. However, this type of cable comes with problemsdiv>
Okay, So you have been told you need ethernet cable wiring for your business or organisation. What exactly is ethernet cable wiring?
Data cable or ethernet cables are utilised to connect or link 1 or more computers to transfer data and information between them and the internet. The Ethernet cabling or structured cabling is the backbone to any network.
Depending on the overall architecture, there are several different types of cables used to enable communication between computers, switches and routers. A very frequently cable used in networks is commonly known as copper twisted pair cable. These types of twisted pair cables are deployed in office environments and commercial sites.
Ethernet cable is utilised in a variety of structured cable networks. They consist of 4 pairs of twisted copper wires, and these thin twisted wires are protected by an outer sheath or insulation to prevent cross-talk or interference from adjacent copper cables.
Ethernet network cables typically support Category 5 and Category 6 industry standards. Often you will find these types of wires to being referred to as CAT5 and CAT6.
Cat 5 or Cat6 ethernet cables are available in two forms. The manufacturers of ethernet cable produce them in a solid core or a stranded core format. Solid core ethernet cables although more prone to breaks are often regarded better in performance and protection from electrical interference. Stranded core ethernet cables are a lot more flexible and are less likely to break or crack making them ideal for use while travelling or for home networks.
Fiber optic cable once upon a time was regarded as a technology used in only high-performance areas, however, it’s now seen in many types of environments and networks. If you know about good old copper cable, then you will soon realise a fiber optic cable is a totally different ball game. The installation of fiber optic cable is not only different but fault-finding, or troubleshooting is a different beast altogether. Unlike copper cable, fiber optic cables are very fragile. The delicate nature of the cable makes it prone to possible problems. We will mention the common problems that occur with fiber optic cables and how they may be repaired.
