    peer-to-peer networking in a small workgroup LAN
  29. UTP (Unshilded Twisted-pair Cable) 8 categories designated by the TIA/EIA 568-A standard.
    • 1. CAT 1- telephone cable
    • 2. CAT 2- was use for Token Ring
    • 3. CAT 3- can be used for Ethernet networks, suffers EMI more than CAT 5; 2 twist per foot
    • 4. CAT 4- can be used for Ethernet networks, suffers EMI more than CAT 5; more twist per foot but less than CAT 5
    • 5. CAT 5- used in LAN. most typical connector RJ-45; has a very high twist per foot
    • 6. CAT 5e-
    • 7. CAT 6-
    • 8. CAT 7-
  30. decision factors UTP: CAT 5
    • 1. max bandwith: 100 mbps
    • 2. EMI: is reduced b/c of the amount of twist
    • 3. signal attenuation: max distance is 100 meters
    • 4. expansion issues: the cable is thin & flexible easy to expand, but equipment is needed to boost the signal, which increases the cost of expansion.

  42. Backbone Wiring-
    encompasses all wring between telecommunications closets, equip rooms, & enterence facilities, including all cables, mechanical cable terminations, & intermediate & main cross-connects
  43. Backbone wiring runs between telecommunications closets, equip rooms & entrence facilities on the same floor, from floor to floor, & even between buildings. the main cable that everything collapses to
  44. Horizontal wiring- encompasses all cable from the work-area wallplate or network connectiojn to the telcomm closet. the outlets, cable, & crossconnections in the closet are all part of the horizontal wiring, which gets its name b/c the cable typically runs horizontally above ceilings or along the floor.
  45. The work area- includes all cable components between a
    horizontal-wiring wallplate or LAN outlet & the end-user telecoms
    devices, I.E telephone, data terminals, pcs, modems, ect. Work-area
    components can include connectors, cables, adapters, terminators
  46. An equipment room-
    houses building telecommunications systems such as PBXs, servers, and
    the mechanical terminations of the telecomm wiring system. Considered
    different than a wiring closet because of the complexity of the
    components it contains, an equipment room nonetheless may take the
    place of a building's wiring closet or it may be a separate entity.
  47. Unlike the other five components of premise wiring systems, cabling administration

    isn't a place. It's a thing—a process that includes all aspects of
    premise wiring related to documenting and managing the system, testing
    the system, as well as the architectural plans for the system.
