1.2 Twisted pair Twisted pair cable is less expensive, required for modern transmission standards. It is a thin, flexible cable that is easy to string between walls. More data speed and less electrical interference or magnetic field interference. Twisted pair has high data transfer. Open Pair Open Pair cable has electrical interference or magnetic field interference. So data lost or not reach to distance. Coaxial Cable Typically has lower attenuation at low frequencies making longer runs. The noise rejection is actually far superior to twisted pair. Shielded Twisted pair The shielding provides further electrical isolation of the signal-carrying pair of wires. Shielded twisted pair wires are less susceptible to electrical interference caused by nearby equipment or wires and, in turn, are less likely to cause interference themselves. Because it is electrically "cleaner," shielded twisted pair wire can carry data at a faster speed than unshielded twisted pair wire can. The disadvantage of shielded twisted pair wire is that it is physically larger and more expensive than twisted pair wire, and it is more difficult to connect to a terminating block. 1.3 The users share the total bandwidth of the satellite transponder in frequency. The major drawback of this is the limited bandwidth and adjacent channel interference. 1.4 1.4.1
