TIA/EIA is abbreviation of Telecommunication Industry Association
and Electronics Industry Alliance that sets telecommunication standards in the US. BestLink Netware patch cable
complies with the latest TIA/EIA telecommunication cable standards.
There are two standards fo ??r w iring color c ode, 568A and 568B. While there's no difference in
connectivity between 568A and 568B, 568B is the most prevalent wiri ng color code in the US. Our patch cable is 568B
UTP and STP UTP is Unshielded Twisted Pair and STP is Shielded
Twisted Pair. STP cable is wrapped in metal foil or braid. Both have the same Ethernet communication performance, but
STP has better protection against Electro-Magnetis noise from outside. UTP is accepted for residential and general
CM rated jacket CM for communication. It is set by UL
(Underwriters labolatory) to indicate the wire jacket material safety. CM rating is safe to use in residential and
general commercial installtions.
24AWG and Stranded AWG
(American Wire Gauge) indicates wire thickness. Higher the number, thinner the wire. 24AWG or 26AWG is commonly used for
ethernet cables. Stranded wire is a bundle of thin wires as oposed to solid wire that is single solid wire. Stranded
wire is more flexible than solid wire and commonly used for indoor network wiring such as patch cable.
RoHS Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive. This directive restricts the use of hazardous materials such as
lead or mercury in the manufacture of electronic and electrical equipments. BestLink Netware cables are all RoHS
