  1. Glossary of Terms for Computer Network Cabling

    1. Twisted Pair Cable: A type of cabling that consists of two insulated copper wires twisted together to reduce interference and crosstalk.
    2. Ethernet: A standard protocol for local area networks (LANs) that governs how data is transmitted between devices over a network.
    3. Cat (Category) Cable: A classification system used to categorize different types of twisted pair cables based on their performance and data transmission capabilities. Common categories include Cat 5, Cat 6, Cat 6a, and Cat 7.
    4. RJ-45 Connector: A standardized connector used to terminate twisted pair cables, commonly used for Ethernet connections.
    5. Data Transfer Speed: The rate at which data is transmitted over a network, typically measured in megabits per second (Mbps) or gigabits per second (Gbps).
    6. Bandwidth: The capacity of a network channel to transmit data, often measured in Hz or Mbps.
    7. Crosstalk: Unwanted transfer of signals between adjacent wires within a cable, leading to signal interference and reduced data integrity.
    8. EMI (Electromagnetic Interference): Electrical noise or interference caused by external electromagnetic signals, which can disrupt network communication.
    9. UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair): A type of twisted pair cable that lacks additional shielding, suitable for short-distance network connections.
    10. STP (Shielded Twisted Pair): Twisted pair cables with additional shielding to reduce electromagnetic interference and crosstalk.
    11. FTP (Foiled Twisted Pair): Twisted pair cables with individual pairs wrapped in foil shielding for enhanced protection against interference.
    12. SFTP (Screened Foiled Twisted Pair): Twisted pair cables with both foil and braided shielding, offering superior protection against EMI and crosstalk.
    13. Patch Cable: A short cable used to connect network devices, typically used for interconnecting devices in a local area network.
    14. Patch Panel: A panel that houses multiple network ports for connecting and managing cables in a structured cabling system.
    15. Structured Cabling: A standardized cabling system that organizes and manages network cables within a building or data center, ensuring efficient and reliable network connections.
    16. Plenum Cable: A type of cable with a fire-resistant outer jacket, suitable for installation in plenum spaces, such as air ducts or ceiling cavities.
    17. Riser Cable: A type of cable designed for vertical installations between floors or in riser shafts.
    18. LAN (Local Area Network): A network that connects devices within a limited geographical area, such as an office, home, or campus.
    19. WAN (Wide Area Network): A network that spans a large geographical area, connecting devices across cities or countries.
    20. Network Switch: A networking device that connects devices within a LAN, enabling data transfer between connected devices.
    21. Network Router: A networking device that connects different networks and directs data packets to their intended destinations.
    22. Termination: The process of connecting cables to connectors, switches, or patch panels to establish network connections.
    23. Certification: Testing and verification of network cabling using specialized equipment to ensure compliance with industry standards and specifications.
    24. Backbone Cabling: The main cabling infrastructure that connects different areas within a building or data center, forming the foundation of the network.
