6 Figure 3 Twisted-pair cable unguided Two type: shielded and unshielded Used primarily in star and tree/hub network Unshielded twisted pair [UTP]: - does not include any extra shielding around the wire pair - ordinary telephone line and commonly used for LAN - least expensive, easy to work [less rigid], simple to install - subject to external electromagnetic interference - limited length
