Cables are the assembly that consist of two or more than two wires bonded together and their ends could be connected to two different devices, to perform the core function of cables i.e. transmitting power and signals as well. When we talk about cables there comes types of cables as well, where ‘coaxial assemblies’ possess more importance because of their versatility. coaxial assemblies are the type that comprises of two conducting and two insulating materials, the inner conducting element is copper conductor lies in the center of the cable then a plastic insulating layer surrounds this copper wire, which is then further surrounded by copper shielding layer and ultimately a jacket covers the entire cable from environmental conditions.
When we talk about versatility coaxial assemblies proves themselves, as they are more versatile than fiber optics and twisted pair cables.
Distance: Although they are a bit expensive to install but can be cabled over longer distances than twisted pair cables so they are been use comparatively more often for Ethernet as they lengthen the distance to about 500m which is only 100 meters with twisted pair cables.
Less Boost Requirement: While working with LAN, coaxial cables can run with less requirements from boost through repeaters. Repeaters are those which regenerate the signals in a network so that it would cover greater distance without intermittency.
Different Sizes: Selection of size of the cable is of great worth, but not all the cables are size flexible like coaxial cables, size of coaxial assemblies are identified by Prefix RG (radio guide). Most common sized coaxial assemblies using now-a-days are RG-59, RG-6 & RG-11. RG 59 is the thinnest of all and is employed to transmit video signals for cable system. Then comes the RG-6, it is considered to be the standard size and prioritized by cable and satellite companies. And eventually the RG-11 is thickest of them all, and is utilize where the cable tap is long distance from the residence.
Connecting source: Coaxial assemblies can also be utilize to connect portable devices like television and computers to satellite dish or cable connection.
Capacity: Coaxial assemblies are capable of carrying various types of signals like video signals, radio signals etc, so their capacity is important. They are competent to transmit huge amount of data at a high rate of speed up-to 10 MB per second. This imparts them priority to be used for broadband internet connection.
Varied Ranges of Frequency: Coaxial assemblies have the potential to transmit various frequencies at the same time, making them more reliable and a good choice to be use for simultaneous purposes like, to run the cable connection and internet connection on the same coaxial cable.
These versatile uses of coaxial assemblies reflects the pre-eminence of these cables over other cables.
