Network Cabling
       Making connections with Cat5


   Way cool!
Overview


 What  cable types are
  available?
 How do cables work?
 How are cables used in
  networking?
 How are connections made?
Learning Objectives

   List common cable types used in networking
   Describe how UTP cables are made
   Explain how UTP cables are used in Ethernet networks
   Demonstrate the ability to make a working patch cable
   Name the two wiring standards used for wired Ethernet
    networks and their uses
Common network cable types


   Coaxial cable




   Unshielded
    twisted pair



   Fiber optic
UTP characteristics


   Unshielded
   Twisted (why?) pairs of insulated conductors
   Covered by
    insulating sheath
UTP categories


Category 1    Voice only (Telephone)

Category 2    Data to 4 Mbps (Localtalk)

Category 3    Data to 10Mbps (Ethernet)

Category 4    Data to 20Mbps (Token ring)
Category 5    Data to 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet)
Category 5e   Data to 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet)
Category 6    Data to 2500Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet)
Cat5e cable

   1000Mbps data capacity
   For runs of up to 90 meters
   Solid core cable ideal for structural installations (PVC or
    Plenum)
   Stranded cable ideal for patch cables
   Terminated with RJ-45 connectors
RJ45 connector
Making connections - Tools


   Cat5e cable
   RJ45 connectors
   Cable stripper
   Scissors
   Crimping tool
Making connections - Steps


1.   Strip cable end
2.   Untwist wire ends
3.   Arrange wires
4.   Trim wires to size
5.   Attach connector
6.   Check
7.   Crimp
8.   Test
Step 1 – Strip cable end


   Strip 1 – 1½” of insulating sheath
   Avoid cutting into conductor insulation
Step 2 – Untwist wire ends


   Sort wires by insulation colors
Step 3 – Arrange wires


   TIA/EIA 568A: GW-G OW-Bl BlW-O BrW-Br
   TIA/EIA 568B: OW-O GW-Bl BlW-G BrW-Br
Step 4 – Trim wires to size


   Trim all wires evenly
   Leave about ½” of wires exposed
Step 5 – Attach connector


   Maintain wire order,
    left-to-right, with RJ45
    tab facing downward
Step 6 - Check


   Do all wires extend to end?
   Is sheath well inside connector?
Step 7 - Crimp


   Squeeze firmly to crimp connecter
    onto cable end (8P)
Step 8 – Test


   Does the cable work?
Let’s go to work!
