The physical wire of fibre for the transmission of signals
The physical cabling plant, satellite, or microwave circuits over which network data passes. Common network media are coaxial and fiber optic cable, twisted-pair wiring, and telephone circuits.
In this document, networking wiring such as 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX UTP cable, and coax cable is referred to as media. Other media includes radiowave and fiber optic.
The type of physical wiring and lower-layer protocols used for transmitting and receiving packets; for example, Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring.
The main network bus defined by two characteristics: 1) The electrical signal level and 2) the characteristics of the wiring they will travel over. Typically, our standard PowerCommand Network uses 22 AWG Unshielded Twisted-Pair (UTP) wire operating at 78 KBPS.
The physical method of transferring data in a network; examples include twisted pair wire, coaxial cable, and optical fiber.
The path along which a signal is propagated, such as wire pair, coaxial cable, optical fiber, or radio wave path.
(1) Devices used to store software or data. (2) The physical (wire or fiber) transmission material supporting communications on a network. For example, Ethernet networks can use three different types of media: shielded or unshielded twisted pair, coaxial, and fiber optic cable.
