XII Chapter 0001: Summary
In this chapter you learned the specifications of the most popular types of network cable, including coax, twisted pair and fiber-optic cables. Within twisted pair, you learned about Ethernet (UTP) and IBM Token Ring (STP) cabling standards.
Also, the features of various physical cable topologies were discussed. You learned about different types of cable connectors and connector wiring, including the wiring required for 10xBase-T straight-through patch cables and crossover cables.
Understanding these details will aid in implementing the type of network that will provide the desired communication functionality, while balancing costs of implementation and uptime.
Additionally, one of the keys to success for Network+ lies in correctly identifying the various cable speeds and feeds, so KNOW THOSE CHARTS!
