Before we begin.

What is a Network Cable? It is a physical computer network transmission medium used to carry data packet from one computing device to another.

We have various types, but the most commonly used one is the twisted pair cable which are of two types. I.E. Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) and Shielded Twisted Pair (STP).

In terms of usage, UTP is the more prevalent and popular cabling that is used in most homes, offices, and even in large scale businesses due to its lower cost.  whiles STP is commonly used by large scale companies in high-end applications that require the maximum bandwidth. STP cables are also used in outdoor environments where the cables are exposed to structures and equipment that may introduce additional interference.
