Chapter 5 - Network Cabling Reflect In chapter 5 various types of cables used for networking were discussed. There are twisted-pair cables and fiber optic cables that are most commonly used. The compositions of the two types of cables as well as the benefits from both were explained. Transmissions along the cables are in either analog signals or digital signals. This chapter described the differences between the two types of signals and the positives and negatives associated with both. After that the chapter discusses the different connectors between cables. Finally, the chapter provided information on transmission flaws. Answer all questions 1. Amplitude, Wavelength, Frequency, and Phase 2. Translates modulated data. 3. Twist ratio is the number of twists per meter or foot. This is important because it can affect the chances of cross talk, the quality of the cable, and the price of the cable. 4. Kevlar 5. Cost and optical loss 6. Due to being only a single fibre the light does not disperse as the signal travels.
