Unformatted text preview: around each other to reduce internal interference, or "crosstalk." Twisted-pair wiring is in turn classified as "shielded"—using an outer conductive sheath to reduce external electromagnetic interference—and "unshielded." The "unshielded" type is more widespread in today's market. The EIA/TIA structured cabling standard specifies the preferred installation methods for optimal operation, thereby forming the foundation for network architecture design and implementation. The most commonly used cable is the Category-5 cable, also called Cat-5. Most Cat-5 cables are unshielded...
