4. In order to make a well-designed computer network cabling, the following lists the minimum and the recommended requirements when you deploy LAN cabling for your computer network. All UTP cable segments including patch leads, wall and roof cabling must be less than 100 meters in total length and should be CAT5 compliant. All cabling should be provisioned correctly and fastened securely in a non-hostile environment. New fiber optic connectors should be either SC or MT-RJ type interfaces. The following are some types of Computer LAN Cable that are typically used in the local computer networking environments. 3. Cabling should be color coded, adequately labeled and patched to a secure central location. 2. Longer distance 2. The maximum speed of UTP LAN Cables is 1 gigabit for Category 5e which is identified by the slightly higher number of twists per inch with single nylon jacket insulation. Structured cabling provides LAN connectivity at Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) and potentially Gigabit speeds using current standards based UTP wiring. All the structured cabling must comply with Certified CAT5 (category 5). Computer LAN Cabling Anti-bacterial polyester yarns must be documented and patched in a tidy fashion to a secure location. 10Base5 was referred to as thicknet, and 10Base2 was referred to as thinnet because 10Base5 used thicker coaxial LAN Cables, they are regarded as legacy Computer Network Cable. The grade of the cable is identified by the number of Twists per inch, the less attenuation, the less signal interference and the less crosstalk. While if you want to make an interconnecting the same two devices ' use crossover cable. 2. 3. UTP LAN Cables is the most popular for Computer cabling; it contains 4 pairs of color coded plastic insulation.LAN Cables are the Ethernet transmission media connecting network devices in the computer network environment. 4. The recommended computer LAN Cabling requirements are: 1. Less magnetic interference, making it more secure 4. The main different in terms of function, between optical LAN Cables for Ethernet and electrical cable as follows: 1. Coaxial LAN Cables are which the original Ethernet network technology is based on, it can extend up to 500 meters per segment, but maximum speed is 10 Mbps. You can go maximum to 100 meters (approx 300 feet), if you go further than that, you cannot guarantee ' there'll be too much signal strength attenuation. Less expensive multi-mode fiber (MMF) connections are to be used for segments less than 400 meters and single-mode fiber (SMF) for segments up to 2 kilometers long. Wall points and patch panels must be labeled. Gigabit connections for file servers should be provisioned using MMF and not UTP due to known performance limitations using gigabit over current copper standards. Today coaxial LAN Cables is not popular anymore. Any legacy LAN cabling should be replaced with CAT5e cable. Fiber optic cabling allows transmission across LAN backbone connections at Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and future 10GE/100GE speeds. So the grade of the cable is identified by the number of twists per inch. Fiber optic Fiber optic is the latest transmission media for Ethernet standard used in LAN Cables. UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) and STP (Shielded twisted pair) There are two types of copper-wire: UTP and UTP. An ongoing cable management process should be in place to ensure cabling is correctly patched and is tidy. Coaxial LAN Cables Coaxial LAN Cables are used for 10Base2 and 10Base5 Ethernet in years past. All the backbone links that require gigabit and higher speeds should use the Fiber optic cabling. High speed LANs are required in order to provide the scalable bandwidth necessary to support current and future network applications and services. A well-designed Computer Network Cabling can be a critical task of making a LAN network more manageable and available. 5. Can support up to 10Gbps Certified optical fiber should be used for vertical and/or horizontal cabling where gigabit backbone connections are required. Greater monetary cost 3. Wall points and patch panels must be labeled. Connecting devices Here is the rule, when interconnecting different devices ' use straight through LAN Cables. All UTP cable segments (including patch leads, wall and roof cabling) must be less than 100 meters long (total length) and CAT5e compliant. Minimum requirements: 1. Certified CAT5e (enhanced) structured cabling and/or fiber optic cabling. . Standard coloring should be used.
