    1.3.1 Types of networking cables:

   

A network in digital world is a group of computers, servers, mainframes and other electronics devices which is connected to one another for sharing data or communication is known as network or computer network.

 

Types of Computer Networks :

 

  1. Physical Networks

  2. Virtual Networks

 

Computer networks are generally consist of physical or virtual Networks.

 

 

These Networks are used by these devices to exchange data with each other using connections between nodes. 

 

 

Note : An excellent example of network is INTERNET . We all use today.    

 

 

What are Nodes ?

 

    In telecommunication, a node can be considered as a starting point of network or the end point of network.

Networking cables are used  to connect one network device to other network devices or to connect one or more computers to share data, to connect printers and scanners or for communication purposes.

 

These connection could be established by using different types of networking cables depending on the physical layer, topology and size.

These devices could be placed at few meters( eg. via Ethernet) or at unlimited distance (eg. via the interconnections  of the Internet).

 

Types of Cables :

 

  1. Twisted Pair

  2. Coaxial Cable
