Traditionally, cables are shielded by a round jacket. Look at any cable, any cable at all, from your smartphone charger to the HDMI connecting your entertainment system or if you dare – the cables inside your walls (electrical, data, low voltage, etc.). They are all round. Unless – you are brave enough to go another route, or actually another shape.

Wiring your house for today’s electronics while building or renovating, your house is easier and more cost effective than having to do so down the line. If you are planning or even wishing to one day have a home theater, install a high-capacity, high-grade wiring and cable during construction, while the walls are accessible.

Easy Steps To Wiring a Patch Panel

In our growing network environment, adding network components and expanding existing networks is a common need. Businesses and office buildings, as well as universities and even schools, have a growing population of internet users. The growth in the numbers of users / computers, often leads to the need for a central server, to link all computers and store information as needed. This is where a patch panel comes in. Read our article and find our patch panels at http://www.tektel.com/06-Ethernet-Patch-Panel.html

What are Ethernet Cables

What are Ethernet cables? They are cables used for wiring networks by connecting devices (computers, routers & switches) on a LAN (Local Area Network). They carry broadband signal between the network’s different components (computer, router, modem and any additional internet capable device).
Generally, Ethernet cables are made with 8 wires that are twisted into 4 pairs. The pairs are color coded with a solid color and its respective dashed/striped white.
Ethernet cables are made in two conductor formats – solid and stranded. A solid conductor cable is used for wiring buildings. Since it is a single conductor, it is easy to punch down onto wall jacks and patch panels. For best results, use solid for wall jacks and stranded for crimp connectors. A Stranded conductor cable is typically used for terminating standard RJ45 connectors to create patch cables. The cable itself is more flexible, and rolls up well.
There are UTP and STP Ethernet cables available. UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) is the more common of the two, and it has bundled wires inside a polyethylene jacket with no additional protection. UTP cables are best used for home and office networks, and where there is relative low degree of electromagnetic interference. STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cables have a protective metallic foil designed to shield the signal from electrical interference and allow it to carry data at a faster speed.
Selecting the appropriate Ethernet cable per installation is crucial, but properly installing and maintaining the cable is equally important for best results.

UTP stands for Unshielded Twisted Pair, and refers to a popular cable type that is made of two unshielded wires twisted around each other. This low cost cable is used primarily in local-area networks (LANs) and telephone connections. While coaxial cables provide higher bandwidth and better interference protection than UTP cables, UTP cables are more affordable and easier to work with.

An Ethernet Cable is a network cable used to connect wired networks. In their short version (several feet or so), they connect between a computer and a modem or router in a home network, while bulk Ethernet cables (up to 1000 feet runs are available) are used to set up a network, connecting multiple computers (possibly in different rooms) and other devices to the server usually in offices and other businesses.

In today’s market, with new innovations and constantly changing technologies, it may be a challenge to keep up with what is available as well as what is both an appropriate product for specific needs & of high quality. When looking at the cabling industry, the big question is copper or CCA cable.
