• We say ‘Wired Network Technology”.
• In computing terminology, the term “wired” is
basically used to differentiate between wireless
connections and those that involves cables.
• The transmission of data over a wire-based
communication technology and that technology is
known as wired technology.
Some of the most defining moments in the history of wired network
technology, which influenced the advancements it’s making today,
• 1876: The invention of the telephone started a revolution towards
• 1964: With the introduction of optical fiber, the potential of wired
• 1970: Ethernet technology, which uses a coaxial-based or twisted
copper transport system, was developed.
• 1980: During this decade, researchers built the foundation for a
digital subscriber line (DSL).
• 2000: Broadband technology became available to consumers.
Today, more than 20 million users trust it.
• Wired may refer to peripheral devices as well. Since
many keyboards and mice are now wireless, "wired"
is often used to describe input devices that connect to
a USB port.
• Peripherals such as monitors and external hard
drives also use cables, but they are rarely called wired
devices since wireless options are generally not
• While many peripherals are now wireless, some users
still prefer wired devices, since they have a few benefits
over their wireless counterparts. For example, an
Ethernet connection is not prone to signal interference
that can slow down Wi-Fi connections. Additionally,
wired network connections are often faster than wireless
ones, which allows for faster data transfer rates. Some
users also prefer wired peripherals since their is no
need to replace batteries on a regular basis. Gamers
especially prefer wired keyboards and mouce since they
have lower latency and can be backlit, thanks to the
power provided by the USB connection.
• It continues to evolve and test the limits of speed as
researchers discover faster ways to transmit data.
TYPES OF WIRES OR
• Coaxial Cables-used in TV, Computer systems
• CCTV Cables-used for CCTV cameras
• Ethernet Cables-used for LAN connections
• Telephone Cables-used for landlines
• Jelly Filled Cables-used underground
• Reliable – Not affected by other wireless
signals(portable/cellular phones, microwaves,etc)
• Price – Wire is cheap
• High life expectancy
• High speed
• QoS(Quality of Service)
