The Function of Computer Network Cables

Any network needs to communicate quickly and efficiently to a large number of other machines and servers. The most practical way to do so is with hardware cables that can bend and move through the office space safely. There are three basic kinds of cables that are used in business computer networks.

Different kinds of Cables

There are three basic types of cables that are the industry standard for all networks:

  • Category 5 (Cat5) Cables—are the most common cables used in most office buildings. Cat5 cable has 4 twisted pairs of wires in a single cable jacket. The use of these balanced lines helps keep a high signal-to-noise ratio even though it may encounter interference from both external sources and other pairs (known as crosstalk). Ultimately without getting needlessly technical, a Cat5 cable combines flexibility with signal efficiency.
  • Optical Cables—are thin clear tubes that transmit signals through light. Permits higher bandwidth at longer distances. Only necessary in larger scale, but possibly the fasted, most efficient manner of computer networking for your large business.
  • 100BaseVG—VG (voice grade) Ethernet, initially as Fast Ethernet, now standardized by the IEEE as 100VG-AnyLAN, is a newer technology manner of cable transmission.
