Advantages and disadvantages of coaxial cable
- Feb 01, 2018 -

The advantage of coaxial cable is that it can support high-bandwidth communication on a relatively long line without repeaters, and its shortcomings are obvious: one is large, the diameter of the cable is 3/8 inches thick, to occupy a large number of cables pipe space, the second is unable to withstand entanglement, pressure and serious bending, these will damage the cable structure, Blocking the transmission of the signal; Finally, the cost is high, and all these disadvantages are twisted by twisted pair, so in the current LAN environment, it is basically replaced by the physical layer specification of the Ethernet based on twisted pair.
