UTP Cable: used for different signal transmission speed

UTP is known as unshielded twisted pair cables. These cables are most popular around the world as they are one of the best cables which are used for signal transmission in different types of industries. These cables are mainly used in telecommunication industries for network connection. These cables are one of the most reliable cables and available in six different types which can be installed according to the requirement. They are protected from interferences and able to transmit accurate signals at high bandwidth. UTP cables are very easy to install as they are incorporated with copper wires which provides them flexibility and also available in different colors and lengths.


These cables are twisted with two unshielded twisted wires to provide them durability. The thickness of their insulation helps them in blocking unwanted electromagnetic interferences and crosstalk. UTP Cables are commonly for LAN’s (local area networks), telephones and many more. In these cables both wires contain equal current so that they will be able to transmit balanced signals. The most commonly used categories of these cables are CAT3, CAT5 and CAT6. CAT3 is basically used for domestic cabling like telephone wiring etc, CAT5 is used for computer networks in industries either small or big and CAT6 cable is improved version of CAT5 as they are used to transmit more prominent signals.


These cables are available in different colors and size. There are many other UTP Cables which we use for signal transmission such as:

·         Shielded twisted pair

·         Fiber optics

·         Coaxial cable

·         Cable insulation guides

·         Wireless LAN’s




These cables contain eight wires which are grouped together to make them four wires by rounding them with each other individually in pair of two. They are twisted together to minimize the interferences and fluctuations and transmit data in balanced manner. They include various characteristics such as:

·         Good performance

·         High flexibility

·         High signal transmission

·         Accurate signal transmission




The performance of these cables depends on the category of cable you are using Category 1 cable is used to transmit 1mbps speed for signal transmission, 2, 3,4category cables are used to transmit low speed signals they are basically used for telephone signal transmission and category UTP Cables are used to transmit 100mbps speed for data transmission. They are the most commonly used cables for network transmission at high as well as low bandwidth and Category6 cables are used to transmit 10,000 mbps speed and mainly used in large industries.



They are not much feasible to be used in different environments as they easily get affected by any kind of climatic attack and results in loss of data and information.   


UTP Cables are widely used in different types of telecommunication industries for accurate signal transmission. These cables are available in different colors and lengths and used for high as well as low bandwidth.
