Overview

Cabling is one of the fastest changing technologies today, and this updated book addresses the latest developments in premises cabling, including wireless networks. The "hands on" processes used in the installation of data, voice, and video cabling are observed using minimal theory and liberal practical advice. A logical format that separates key concepts into specific sections minimizes confusion between the unique installation practices among the different technologies. Copper cabling is first discussed, including coax, telephone, and Cat 3 and Cat 5 LAN cabling. A section devoted to fiber optics then follows. Within each section, discussions progress from the basics to components, installation, and testing to assist in the development of individual skills.
