The cables used for networking are complex in themselves. Commonly, network cable consists of 4 or 5 twisted-pairs of solid copper, wrapped with a plenum-compatible jacket. The ends look very much like large phone connectors, and the proper construction and routing of these cables is critical to your network performance. Poorly ended cables are more susceptible to noise and cables run too close to electro-magnetic sources, such as flourescent light ballasts, can introduce noise onto the line, resulting in data packets having to be re-sent repeatedly to get to their destination.
