Have you heard of IEEE 802.3? It has a long history and has to do with our topic today, Ethernet.

Ethernet is a communication standard that was developed in the early ’80s to network computers and other devices in a local environment such as a home or a building.

This local environment is defined as a LAN (Local Area Network) and it connects multiple devices so that they can create, store and share information with others in the location.

Ethernet is a wired system that started with using coaxial cable and has successfully progressed to now using twisted pair copper wiring and fiber optic wiring.

Let’s break for a trivia question. Who invented twisted pair wiring?
Alexander Graham Bell invented twisted pair wiring in 1881.

In 1983, Ethernet was standardized into the standard IEEE 802.3 by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).

This standard defined the physical layer and the MAC (media access control) portion of the data link layer of wired Ethernet.
These two layers are defined as the first two layers in the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) model
The “physical” layer consists of the following components: Cabling and Devices.

First, let’s take a look at Ethernet Cabling;
As stated previously, Ethernet cables come as coaxial cable, which is not very common except in older installations, twisted pair, and fiber optic.

The most common cable is twisted pair cables, with the latest being Category 6 with speeds up to 1 Gbps and Cat6a and Cat 7 with speeds up to 10 Gbps.

Category 5 and 5e cables are both still used in many existing applications but handle the lower speeds between 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps but are more susceptible to noise.

The Ethernet twisted pair utilizes RJ-45 eight-pin connectors at either end of the cable that is pinned for transmitting and receiving data in either half or full-duplex mode.

Ethernet Cables, UTP vs STP, Straight vs Crossover, CAT 5,5e,6,7,8 Network Cables

This is an animated video explaining Ethernet network cables, such as unshielded twisted pair (UTP) and shielded twisted pair (STP). Straight (patch ) cables vs Crossover cables and CAT 3,5,5e,6,6a,7 and 8. It also shows the wiring order of ethernet cables and how to make RJ45 network patch cables.

Coaxial cables and common connectors

Different types of networking cables are used to connect different devices. In networking, the most common cables include coaxial cable, twisted pair, optical fiber, and parallel/serial cables. Their uses depend on the network topology, hardware, software, and network size. Networking cables, connectors, and their specifications belong to the physical layer or layer one of the OSI Model.

Today my topic is coaxial cable, common uses, and some common connectors.
