In the video, learn the specifications and connector types associated with coaxial cable.
- One of the oldest types of network cabling out there today…is still, interestingly enough,…one of the most commonly used types of network cabling…out there today, and by that,…I'm talking about coaxial cable.…Coaxial cable dates all the way back to World War II,…and we still see it today if you're using…a cable modem in your house,…odds are good you're using coaxial cable.…Now, what I've got here is a very old type of coaxial cable.…I like using this because it's really big…and yellow and pretty.…
What we're doing here is we're taking a look…at what consists inside a coaxial cable.…So if you take a look, first of all,…we've got a little copper conductor there.…That's surrounded by this white insulator,…and then we have another conductor.…All this different type of metal…and aluminum foil in all this, this is a second conductor,…and then all of this is wrapped in some polyvinyl chloride.…The reason we call coax coax…is because those two conductors,…the one copper one in the middle,…and the big metal sheathing around that,…
