Ethernet Cable Shielding
- UTP - Unshielded Twisted Pairs; the most common and basic method of cable construction, consisting of twisted pairs together. There is no shielding, instead the symmetrical twist in the wires creat a balanced transmission line, helping to against EMI/RFI noise.
- FTP - Foild with Unshielded Twisted Pairs; the type features an overall foil shield wrapped aroung unshielded twisted pairs and drain wire. When the drain wire is correctly connected unwanted noice is redirected to ground, offering extra protection against EMI/RFI.
- S/FTP - Shielded with Foiled Twisted Pairs; the individual twisted pairs are wrapped in a foil tape being wrapped in an overall flexible strong braiding. The additional foil on the twisted pairs helps to reduce crosstalk from adjacent pairs and other cables. The braiding provides better grounding.
- Molded connectors - using overmolding on the connector and cable, making the cable more durable and able to withstanding a high number of insertion cycles.
- Snagless (boot) connectors - has a boot that can protect the RJ45 connector's lock from being snapped off easily and demaged.
