What is Melbourne network cabling?

May 30, 2013

Cable is the medium through which information usually moves from one network device (a desktop computer for example) to another.  There are several types of cable that are commonly used with LANs.  In some cases, a network will utilise only one type of cable, other networks will use a variety of cable types.  The type of cable chosen for a network is related to the network’s topology, protocol, and size.  Understanding the characteristics of different types of cable and how they relate to other aspects of a Melbourne network cabling system are necessary for the development of a successful network.

The following are the types of cables used in our Melbourne network cabling:

  • Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable
  • Shielded twisted pair (STP) cable
  • Coaxial cable
  • Fiber optic cable
  • Cable installation guides
  • Wireless LANs
