Electrical communication cables are generally more cost effective than fiber optic cables when it comes to covering short and medium distances and where many interfaces are required. Ideal areas of application are typically the local level of telecommunication networks and the holizontal level of Local Area Networks. Technology has also been making enormous strides in the area of electrical communication cables. Examples of such progress are balanced calbes, which in their shielded versions can carry data at gigabit rates, coaxial cables for connecting receivers and satellite antennae in the in-house area or the development of new flame-retardant materials and cables. High transmission frequencies of up to around 100 GHz are also entirely possible with coaxial cables.
This book gives a comprehensive description of the technology of electrical communication cables which reflects their current significance. It is primarily intended for network planners and consultants and for installation engineers requiring detailed knowledge of cable technology, but students, engineers and the technically-minded will also find it a good introduction to communication cable technology.
