A thin diameter network wire, wrapped with a metal sheath for extra protection against electrical interference.
Two-pair wire medium used in the transmission of several different protocols. STP is capable of supporting CDDI for link distances of up to 100 meters. These wires have a layer of shielded insulation.
Cable which has a metal sleeve covering two shielded twisted copper wires, which allows protection from electromagnetic interference, whereas the UTP, although of similar design and function, allows no interference protection. See Unshielded Twisted Pair.
Two pair cabling, with both pairs having its own individual shield, in addition to an overall shield surrounding both pairs. STP is most familiar to LAN users as the heavy black IBM Type 1 cabling found in token ring networks.
Cable construction that includes an external grounded shield as well as twisting on a regular basis to help minimize noise interferences.
STP) Shielded twisted pair is a special kind of copper wiring used in some business installations of telephones and networks. An outer covering or shield is added to the ordinary twisted pair telephone wires; the shield functions as a ground. See also Unshielded Twisted Pair.
A twisted-pair cable with foil shielding around each pair.
Cable that has shielding around it to provide more protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI).
A twisted pair of cables surrounded by a wire gauze shield, commonly used by IBM.
A transmission line composed of a twisted 2-wire metallic transmission line surrounded by a sheath of conductive material that protects it from the effects of external fields and confines fields produced within the line.
