Networking cables and connectors are network hardware components that allow devices to connect and communicate with each other. Different types of network cables exist, each offering different standards, limitations, and speeds. In addition to connecting devices, network cables and connectors are essential for transferring data and information between computers, routers, switches, and storage area networks. In this course, you'll examine common network cabling implementations such as copper and fiber. You'll discover how to differentiate between the different cable types, including twisted pair, coaxial, and twinaxial. You'll also explore the many different connector and transceiver types and learn common cable management responsibilities including working with patch panels and punchdown blocks. Finally, you'll learn how to differentiate between 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T, 10GBASE-T, and 40GBASE-T copper Ethernet standards, as well as the 100BASE-FX, 100BASE-SX, 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-LX, 10GBASE-SR, and 10GBASE-LR fiber Ethernet standards. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the N10-008: CompTIA Network+ certification exam
