Twisted Pair Cable Advantages and Disadvantages

As in the Previous article we had seen Coaxial cables and Types. So lets have a look on What is Twisted Pair Cable? | Twisted Pair Cable Advantages and Disadvantages in Network Media Transmission.

Twisted Pair Cables

Twisted pair cable is a very important network media. It can be used for phone communication and cable Ethernet networks. Twisted pair cabling is a type of wiring in which two conductors of a single circuit are twisted together for the purposes of cancelling out electromagnetic interface (EMI) from external sources. 
There are two kinds of twisted cable, UTP and STP.

UTP:-                                    

UTP means Unshielded Twisted pair, which is the copper media and inherited from telephony, which can be used for increasingly higher data rates, and is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for horizontal wiring, the connection between, and including, the outlet and the termination in the communication closet.

Advantages of UTP:

  • The advantage of UTP is that they are very flexible, low cost media, and can be used for either voice or data communications.
Disadvantages of UTP:
  • The main disadvantages with UTP is the bandwidth. We cannot achieve high bandwidth with UTP cables.

STP:-

STP cable is Shielded Twisted Pair copper conductive netting or casing, performed with individually or with external conductive shield around all pairs. It is heavier and more difficult to  manufacture, but it can extraordinarily enhance the signalling rate in a given transmission plot. Twisting gives cancellation of magnetically induced fields and currents on a pair conductors.

Advantages of STP:
  • The main advantage of STP is that it ensures greater protection from all types of external interface than unshielded twisted pair cable.
Disadvantages of STP:
  • The Disadvantage is, It is more expensive than UTP cables.
