Voice & Data
These 10BaseT standard cables were introduced in the early 1990s. UTP or Unshielded Twisted Pairs and STP or Shielded Twisted pairs are the two variants of twisted pair cables. UTP is commonly used as today's cabling (CAT5e, CAT6, CAT6A, CAT7).
HDMI cables are the digital replacement of analog video and audio standards and they are commonly used for Blu-ray and HD players, digital cameras and camcorders, computers, tablets and mobile phones.
Networks that need a higher speed use fiber optic cables. Modulated light pulses are used instead of electric current to carry data. An optical fiber cable consists of a thin cylinder of glass called the core.
Coaxial cables comprises of a single core that has a heavy cladding, which at times proved difficult during installation. Coax is used in CATV distribution applications, low power video and RF signal connections.
