It’s the age of “wi-fi”. Wireless internet connections are rampant, available in homes, public spaces, and just about anywhere else you can think of.
However, there was a time not too long ago when using cables were one of the few ways of obtaining internet access. Before you dismiss them as outdated, though, know that these cables are still highly relevant, and what’s more, more reliable than wi-fi. And if you’re running large servers or require a stable connection at your workplace, you absolutely need ethernet cables!
Most of us are no strangers to the unreliable nature of wireless connections. There’s absolutely no shame in admitting that we’re slaves to the whims, moods and fancies of our unreliable wireless network because it’s a boat that most of us are sailing in at any given point! Just when you finally get to the exciting climax scene on “Se7en” or “Shawshank Redemption”, you see an all-too-familiar
There are several different types of Ethernet cables. These are categorised based on “shielding” (whether or not the electric cable is encased by a common conductive layer), maximum transmission speed, and maximum bandwidth (the amount of information the connection can handle at a given point of time).
Based on these parameters, there are 6 different types of Ethernet cables. Before we go on to explain them, let’s take a minute
Good wiring in a server room takes pre-thought and effort. Not everyone is up to that.
The Worst Offenders
There is an ineluctable tendency of every wire to droop and sag until it forms an ankle high snare designed to link your falling body to the expensive electrical equipment you manage.
Well, it may not be tidy, but why not just hang the lot from the ceiling instead? I don’t think its just the massive carton of salt on the table that is going to give this server engineer a heart attack.
2. The Highly Evolved Mess
One of the often quoted arguments against ‘intelligent design’ in nature
When putting together a local area network (LAN), you’ve got a number of options if you go wireless; but if you go with good old fashioned wires odds are your best bet is the humble Ethernet cable.
The age and ubiquity of the ethernet cable does mean that it has a taxonomy as tangled as the wires beneath your techie’s desk. So to make it easier here’s the basic decisions you’ll need to make when buying your cables.
What Exactly IS an Ethernet Cable?
Ethernet cables are designed to conduct digital signals between one computer and another, and are used to connect everything from the massive networks required in a multi-floor office right down to linking your computer to a friend’s.
To meet the needs of these varied uses Ethernet cables come in a number of standardised types.
