    • Cat 3

      Cat 3

      Cat 3, short for Category 3, is a UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) cable designed to carry voice and data up to 10 Mbps (mega bits per second), with possible transmission frequencies up to 16 MHz. Cat 3 cable is part of a family of copper cabling standards defined jointly by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA)

    • Subscriber Connectors (SCs)

      Subscriber Connectors (SCs)

      The Subscriber Connector (SC) is a fiber optic connector with a push-pull latching mechanism that provides quick insertion and removal while ensuring a positive connection. The SC is also available in a duplex configuration. It has a benefit in keyed duplex capability to support send/receive channels. This connector is commonly used for most modern network

    • Network Cable is Unplugged

      Network Cable is Unplugged

      When an error message saying, “Network cable is unplugged” is displayed, it generally means that the computer can detect that there is an ASDL and/or Cable Connection pre-configured on the computer, but an Ethernet cable and/or a cable that is supposed to be plugged into the modem is unplugged. In the case that all of

    • Ethernet Crossover Cable

      Ethernet Crossover Cable

      An Ethernet crossover cable can be used to directly connect two network devices through Ethernet. These can either be single computers or they can be networks. Ethernet crossover cables are commonly used for temporarily networking two devices in the absence of a network router, switch, or hub. The principle is the same, but the connection

    • RG-59

      RG-59

      The RG-59 cable is a type of coaxial cable that is used to generate low-power video connections. The cable works on two conductors that are based on a single common axis. It is also used for RF signal connections. The RG-59 cable conducts video and radio frequencies at an impedance of around 75 ohms. The

    • UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair)

      UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair)

      UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) is a regular copper wire that joins many home and many business computers to the telephone company. UTP is the most common form of twisted pair wiring, because it is less expensive and easier to work with than STP (Shielded Twisted Pair). It is used in Ethernet 10Base-T and 100Base-T networks

    • RJ-11

      RJ-11

      RJ-11 is the standard connector utilized on 2-pair (4-wire) telephone wiring. RJ stands for “Registered Jack”- a physical connector interface most often used for telephone wire terminals. Though the RJ-11 connector has a total of 6 connector positions, typically either only 2 or 4 are actually utilized. RJ-11 connector wiring comes in two standard varieties-

      Fiber Optics

      Fiber optic technology makes use of light to carry digital signals via optical cables. Fiber optic cables are very thin glass wires made from extremely pure optical glass. This technology is based on the concept of light reflection. In the case of fiber optics technology, light carrying digital signals is reflected inside the optical cable

    • Multi Mode Fiber

      Multi Mode Fiber

      Multi-mode fiber is a type of fiber optic cable which is thick enough for light to follow several paths through the code. Multi-mode fiber is best suited for use in short lengths, such as those used in Local Area Networks (LANs) and Storage Area Networks (SANs). Multi-mode fiber comes in two standard widths, 62.5 micron

    • RG-11

      RG-11

      Coaxial cables are necessary for rooftop antennas and dish antennas in order to provide crystal-clear sound and audio input. RG-11 bands typically have 75-ohm wires made of copper. Polyethylene dielectric makes sure that there is minimal loss of picture and sound while the antenna receives audio or video feeds. Most users of the RG-11 have
