Hi students, today we're going to learn about the difference between Wire pairs and Coaxial cables. We're going to start from the difference. Can anyone tell me what are wire pairs and coaxial cable used for?
The Difference between Wire pairs and Coaxial cables
Coaxial cables are generally used for cable television and internet connections. Example is our Wi-Fi!
Wire pairs are usually used for telephones connection.
Coaxial cables also support greater cable length.
Excellent! Wire pairs are thinner and less expensive compared to coaxial cables.
But which are better shielded from crosstalk and have higher transmission
Coaxial cables are better shielded from crosstalk and Wire pair cables provide high transmission rates.
Coaxial cables are difficult to install and implement, while wire pair cables are easy to install and implement.
Coaxial cable supports a bandwidth of moderate range. Wire pair cable supports a bandwidth of low range.
Coaxial cable has finest noise protection as compared to twisted pair cable. In wire pair cable, there is lowest noise immunity.
Okay, that ends our lesson for today! See you on our next session.
