We cannot imagine this world without connectivity of the internet. What made this possible is the advancement of networking. Networking is the structured cable connectivity that helps in transferring the data from source to destination. Proper synchronization is required so that each packets, frames of data is collected at receiver end and it should be structured in the same sequence as it was send from the source.
There are various companies that are producing networking equipments like structured cables, connectors, edge cards, sockets, antennas, router, modem etc. The most important of them is the structured cables, there are various types of cables which are manufactured by MOLEX company / Radiant is structured cabling provider in India which provides reliability, transfer of data with synchronization and segmentation of data.
- Twisted pair cables: Twisted pair cable is the ordinary copper wire that connects home and many business computers to the telephone. These types of wires generally provides 10-24 mbps of speed.
- Coaxial Cable: Coaxial cable is the single copper wire which is covered by plastic material called PVC which provides shielding and noise immunity. Coaxial cabling, which uses connectors called BNC (Bayonet Nut Connector) is known as, in forms of Ethernet, LAN technology, ARCnet, and cable TV.
- Cat 3 UTP and STP Category 3 UTP and STP (Cat 3): It include applications as voice (telephony) or data (up to 10 Mbps). More commonly Cat 3 is used on a network for cable segments to workstations or printers. Cat 3 provides maximum bandwidth of 10Mbps and it is best suitable for LAN connection.
- Category 5 UTP and STP Applications for Category 5 UTP and STP: It include voice (telephony) or data (up to 100 Mbps, or with certain technologies, 1000 Mbps). Cat 5 is sometimes used as a backbone; however, is restricted to 100 meters in length. It is currently the most popular cabling for connecting workstations and horizontal cable runs due to its low cost, high bandwidth, relative ease of installation, and ease of termination with RJ-45 connectors.
- Fiber Optic: Fiber optic cabling carries signals, which have been converted from electrical to optical that is in the form of light. It consists of the core, either an extremely thin cylinder of glass or optical quality plastic, which is surrounded by a second glass or plastic layer called the cladding. The interface between the core and cladding can trap light signals by a process called Total Internal Reflection (TIR), resulting in the optical fiber acting as a light pipe. Protective buffer and jackets materials are used to cover the cladding layer that reduces the noise.
Molex companies manufactures all such types of structured cables which fulfill networking requirements of industries, schools, offices etc. Radiant.in are the prime distributor of MOLEX and we ensure genuine product reach to our customers as we believe in the lifetime customer relationship.
