A thin diameter network wire, popular in network cabling installations, relatively cheap
A cable where the pair of wires that carry the signal are not shielded from external electromagnetic interference.
Cable that consists of two unshielded wires twisted around each other and is used extensively in LANs due to its low cost. See Shielded Twisted Pair (STP).
A balanced cable transmission method, used as an alternative to unbalanced coaxial cable.
UTP cable is similar to telephone cable, but has somewhat more stringent specifications regarding its susceptibility to outside electro-magnetic interference than common telephone wire. UTP is much more common the STP (shielded twisted pair) wire.
Two unshielded wires, usually loosely intertwined, that help minimize any induced noise in balanced circuits. This type of wiring is commonly used in LANs.
Cabling with wires that are twisted around each other; the individual wires are uninsulated
Four-pair wire medium used in the transmission of many different telecommunications protocols such as Ethernet, 10BaseT, and CDDI.
Cable that consists of two or more insulated conductors in which each pair of conductors are twisted around each other. There is no external protection and noise resistance comes solely from the twists.
UTP cable is used for analog and digital communications. Flat gray UTP cable is used for phone lines and thicker UTP cable of various colors is used for digital networking. UTP cable has two to four pairs of wires, each pair is twisted around each other. UTP has no metallic shielding around the pairs. Category 5 or CAT5 cable is a popular cable used for networking and has four pairs. This type of cable is used in the IEEE 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T specifications for wired Ethernet networks.
(UTP) A type of data cable containing four pairs of conductors, each pair being twisted together. UTP is used extensively in connecting IP network devices together.
UTP) Unshielded twisted pair is the most common kind of copper telephone wiring and is becoming widely used in networks. To reduce cross-talk or electromagnetic induction between pairs of wires, two insulated copper wires are twisted around each other. Also see Shielded Twisted Pair ( STP).
A popular LAN cable consisting of two wires twisted around each other and surrounded by a plastic jacket. See also 10BASE-T .
Two insulated wires twisted together but not covered with an outer sheath.
Cables that consist of pairs of unshielded wire twisted together. These cables are used for data and telephone networks. They are cheap to produce because...
A cable with one or more twisted copper wires bound in a plastic sheath. Preferred method to transport data and voice to business workstations and telephones. Unshielded wire is preferred for transporting high speed data, because, at higher speeds, radiation is created. If shielded cabling is used, the radiation is not released and creates interference.
Cabling comprising pairs of cable for carrying different signals.
(UTP) Copper wiring used in small-to-large networks to connect host devices to hubs and switches.
Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling is the most common cable used in computer networking. It is a variant of twisted pair cabling. UTP cables are often called ethernet cables after Ethernet, the most common data networking standard that utilizes UTP cables, although not the most reliable.
