The computer network is a combination of two layers. On the one hand, there is a physical connection called hardware and, on the other hand, data or logical layers as software. The electronic signals pass through the physical or hardware layers that pass through the computer network. In the data or logic layer, the Ethernet standards determine how the machines communicate with each other on the network. The Ethernet cable is therefore an essential component of the physical (hardware) layer of the computer network.
Hardware or the physical layer is developing further as a result of new developments that are constantly being developed for them. Ethernet standards. Coaxial cables were once normal in older Ethernet settings, while fiber optic or twisted pair cables became standard. As these are the most commonly used types of cables, the Ethernet cable is the terminology used to describe the latest fiber optic or twisted pair cables. These twisted pair cables are mostly Category 5 or Category 5 cables.
Cat 5 Cable Structure
The Cat 5 cable includes 8 wires that are grouped into four pairs and made of 24 size copper in the casing or casing. . The name "twisted pair" is derived from the fact that each pair of these wires twists around each other while generally carrying three screws on the wire used in the Ethernet cable. This helps to reduce the number of external signal disturbances caused by fluorescent bulbs or radio signals. This also helps to reduce the bridging of other lead pairs. At both ends of the cable, there is usually an 8-position / 8-pin connector called the 8P8C connector.
Cat 5 Cable Function
The Cat 5 Ethernet cable is a "crossover" or "straight cable". Although the cross-adjustment is generally used to connect a computer to multiple networks, the cable sockets are used for internal internal overclocking or for receiving straight cable types. In the final note, new nodes, routers, and switching models currently available on the market can automatically switch between crossover and straight-through. This eliminates the need to use two separate Cat 5 cables.
