We use many different copper connectors to network our computers, and some of them are more common than others. In this video, you’ll learn about some of the copper connectors we use for networking our devices.
Different Ethernet standards and media types have differences between the distance a signal will travel and the speed of the signal over the media. In this video, you’ll learn about coax, copper, and fiber media types and the Ethernet distances and speeds supported across the media.
It’s sometimes difficult to find the right copper or fiber connection for your network devices. In this video, you’ll learn the methods for converting different media types.
As network speeds and topologies have evolved, our copper cabling has evolved with them. In this video, you’ll learn about cable categories and which network topologies are supported across different categories.
Your copper network connections may be a combination of many different cable types. In this video, you’ll learn about the characteristics of UTP, STP, and coaxial cabling.
What is the minimum category of copper cable required to support speeds up to 1,000 megabits per second?
The quality of your copper and fiber infrastructure affects everything that traverses your network. In this module, you’ll learn the importance of troubleshooting physical issues like crosstalk, attenuation, shorts, opens, and impedance mismatches.
