In a telecommunication room, what are the requirements for plywood coverage and ground?
6 guage stranded copper and a grounding bus bar
All metallic cable shields and metallic elements of fiber optic cables should be grounded no more than 50ft from the entry point of the cable/fiber.
What is the purpose of twisting a pair of wires in a cable assembly?
Define the following terms:
Attenuation: Insertion loss - signal loss over a distance.
NEXT: Causes undesired leakage from transit pair "crosstalk" onto near-end receive pair of cabling.
Crosstalk: Unwanted reception of signals induced on a communication line.
Capacitive Coupling: Same twist lengths/transfer of energy.
