costs, speed, expandability and distance, environment, and security ). Another factor that must be considered in the media selection process is the environment. Many types of environments are hazardous to certain media. Industrial environments with heavy machinery produce electromagnetic radiation that can interfere with improperly shielded cables. If your cabling might be traveling through an electromagnetically noisy environment, you should consider using shielded cable or fiber-optics. But as per our requirement the wiring is for the manufacturing equipment so security and noise is free is our top priority and optical fiber is the only option for noise free and security purpose but as our required speed of 2Mbps twisted wired can be also the another option but I would recommend from category 5 to 7. Lets discuss through the all of the outlined factors above to choose specific wire for internet connection.
Running head: Data Communication and Network Technology 3 1. Cost : Cost wise twisted pair of wire from category 1 to 7 is the cheapest of all but for our purpose I would recommend the wired wire from type 3 to type 7 as they provide atleast our required transmission rate. But to have good connectivity of transmission rate of data we must use router or repeater as maximum distance for good transmission is just 100m. But disadvantage is insecure and noisy in manufacturing buildings. But if the price is not a big issue I would
