Shielded Twisted Pair. A thin diameter network wire, wrapped with a metal sheath for extra protection against electrical interference.
STP cable consists of copper-core wires surrounded by an insulator. Two wires are twisted together to form a pair; the pair form a balanced circuit. The twisting prevents interference problems, STP provides protection against external crosstalk.
Shielded twisted-pair cable. Twisted-pair cabling with an overall shield to prevent the entry of outside interference, and individually shielded and twisted-pairs to prevent crosstalk.
Spanning Tree Protocol. A bridge-based system for providing fault tolerance on networks. STP works by allowing you to implement parallel paths for network traffic, and ensure that redundant paths are disabled when the main paths are operational and enabled if the main paths fail.
STP detects and breaks network loops and provides backup links between switches, bridges or routers. It allows a device to interact with other STP-aware devices in your network to ensure that only one path exists between any two stations on the network.

Straight Through Processing: refers in the realm of payment traffic to the automatic processing of payment transactions from the ordering party right through to the beneficiary. The acronym is also used in connection with securities trading but the process involved is different.
Straight Through Processing (STP) defines business processes in such a way that transactional data is entered only once. Its goal is to eliminate inefficiencies in business processes, such as manual re-keying of data (for example, re-keying a purchase order into a credit verification system) or unnecessary batching of data (such as batching of transactions for periodic processing).
Straight Through Processing. The goal of STP is the achievement of completion of an item of work through its entire life cycle without manual intervention.
