Copper UTP cables are used in IT infrastructure installations because they are easy to install and are less expensive than fiber optic cables. They are also more flexible than fiber optic cables and can be used for both voice and data transmission.
UTP stands for Unshielded Twisted Pair. It is a type of cable that consists of four pairs of wires that have been twisted together. The twisting helps to reduce interference from other wires and devices, which can cause data loss or corruption.
Copper UTP cables are available in various standards such as CAT5e, CAT6, and CAT6A. They are ideal for use in small to medium-sized businesses that require high-speed data transfer rates. Copper UTP cables can be used for both indoor (UTP) and outdoor (FTP and STP) installations.
Copper UTP cables are also available in different colors and lengths for quick and easy deployment. They are easy to terminate using RJ45 connectors, which makes them ideal for use in patch panels, wall plates, and other network devices.
