Video Description

Coaxial Cables Just as with Rj45 connections, coaxial connections are used with specific types of network, 10-base 5 and 10-base 2 and thin net networks. What does that all mean. 10 means 10mbps bandwidth, it uses baseband transmission, the 5 means it has a maximum "segment" length of 500 meters, 2 is 185meters, it's also referred to as thin net because it uses a thinner cabling structure. You'll also learn about the different types of connectors, we'll show you how to use the "T" connector and how it works, we'll diagram and explain the connection relationships, you'll learn what happens with one NIC goes bad on the connection route, and how that impacts connectivity the entire connection. Coaxial has two cable types, RG59 and RG6 and their differences are distinct, you'll learn why. HOMEWORK – Google the 5-4-3 Rule, pay close attention to that one, you might just need it!

Video Transcription

00:04
our last network connection type that we wantto look a little bit deeper into is going to be our co axel connection. Now we mentioned that our Ethernet connection R R J 45 uses our tin bait, our tin based T and R 100 based T X on our 1000 based E R Co. Axel is used by our
00:22
tin based five in art in base to network
00:24
as well as our thin networks. So this is not its wisdom pair cable. And we mentioned in a previous video our co axial cable is simply a single copper data wire with a thin layer of soil on top, also with a braided round shield layer.
00:44
So our ground,
00:46
which is our braided metal layer, and then our top rubber protection layer now co axial cable. We talked about how we have a couple different types of connectors. We have our B and C, and we have our f connectors, and we also want to note here that we use this for our 10 base five slash chin base
01:06
two networks.
01:07
These actually connect with our being C connectors to our network interface card,
01:14
using what's called a T connector. This is our T connector here. Say, if we have our cable running along from one end, we use this tea connector. Go right plug right into our computer here and then plug in, lock into the computer, and then you'll keep going along and can plug into the next station in the next station in the next station.
01:33
I say we have our server
01:34
with their switch way over here, providing us A B and C connector. We have our first tee connector moves on to work station, which plugs in using another T connector, moves on to another workstation plugged in with another T connector. One of our disadvantages with CO Axel is
01:53
if this station dies,
01:56
say that network interface goes, car goes, that network interface card goes bad.
02:00
Um, our entire network goes down
02:02
that one network interface coast bad that one computer goes bad. Now this server goes down, no longer has a network connectivity. This computer goes down, no longer has network intimate e network activity, and we see how that could be really aggravating, especially when we're trying to troubleshoot these network issues. And all it takes is for one single station to fail
02:23
in the entire network.
02:23
Fails CO. Axl has to common cable types we already talked about. The connector types are being C and R F connector in the previous video are two cable types are going to be our RG 59 this is going to be used in old the older cabe up like older television cable
02:44
as well as it was also used in ARC Net, which is a very old network type. So older cable as well. A cz arc net. There's also RG six now, which has better shielding than RG 59 it's used in more modern cable connections, Internet connections,
03:02
things like that.
03:04
So the two it is, the more modern. But you still will see co actual a lot less often now. A lot less often. It's definitely being replaced more and more by fiber and
03:15
fiber and Ethernet. Byron R. J 45 type cables and this RG six Neil more likely see using these F connectors. So really, that's all we need to focus on when we're talking about our co Axl. We want to make sure that we know that we have that center data data cable with the outer outer
03:35
braided shielding
03:36
safety here braided shielding. You're probably going to be talking about a co axial cable used by 10 based, five and 10 base to networks as well as thin. Net networks also use this, and it connects using a single T connector to the network interface card. But our network that uses our co axel network.
03:54
If one station goes down,
03:57
everything's down.
03:59
We also want to remember our R J R G 59 which are key term. There would be ARC Net and then our RG six, which has better shielding as well as its a little bit more of a modern cabling than R R G for 59. And it's going. And when you hear F connectors also think of your
04:17
RG six.
04:18
So thank you for joining us here today at cyber dot i t. We talked a bit today Maurin depth about our different type of network connectors that their actual speeds and their of their cables and different network types. My name is Anthony, and again thank you for joining us and hopefully you'll join us again next time here on cyber. Dude, I
