Types of Network Cables

Edit: JFOPT   Date: 13-05-02

Computer networking requires a wide array of cables. From long distance fiber optics to short distance patch cables, different types of cable are used to meet different needs

Fiber Optic
Fiber optic cable uses light pulses to transmit data. These cables increase the speed and accuracy of network communications, as light travels through the fiber with minimal attenuation.

Cat 5 & 6
Cat 5 is a copper medium. It uses copper wire to transmit data across a network. Cat 6 has more shielding than Cat 5, so it has less interference. Both Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling are restricted to lengths of 100 meters.

Coaxial Cable
Although challenging to install, coaxial cabling resists interference and can be used to cover greater lengths than either Cat cabling.

Straight Through
Straight through cables are used to connect a computer or network resource to a device, such as a router.

Crossover
Crossover cables connect similar devices to each other, such as a computer to a computer or a router to a router.
