Transmission Media

By adamtan81 ·
Hi everyone,
I'm currently doing assignment for my Data Communication subject. And the topic is related to the LAN networking, and also Transmission media, as well as the hub and routes. I do recommend one of the company to use Coaxial cable since we have to build up a networking connect to the global Internet from an island. Could anyone tell me what are the benefit for the company using coaxial cable than Fiber optic and twisted pair..?

therefore, should i use a best route and hub for my networking? What is the benefit then? Thanks for anyone who willing to help me answer the question. :))

1)Coaxial cable is primarily good to use but is very expensive but gives you more protection against interference
2)Fiber has the advantage of carring huge amount of data very fast in small size,resists corrosion and is very reliable.
3)Twisted pair is the most popular and the most economical in network cabling
Using coaxial will require 10base5 cabling which is a standard and it have10Mbps speed and the maximum cable length of 500 meters between nodes
10Base5 connects with BNC or AUI connectors(used with coxial)
10BaseT represents 10Mbps and cable length segments to 100 meters (used with UTP)
A hub is used to as a clustering or connecting point for nodes on a ethernet network.
So planning and installation and the location of nodes will factor in cost on what type of cabling is best or prefered.
