How to make Ethernet Patch Cable? [Infographic]

about the ethernet wire

If you have some Ethernet cables and you wish to install it in your home or at your office, obviously; first of all, you will try to contact a network engineer nearest to your access. But now it is very easy to understand and make your own patch cables as an inexperienced person. Ethernet cables have 8 wires twisted in four pairs. Each pair has one wire of certain color and another wire that is white with a colored. The guide line below will completely guide you to make your own patch cables. Unroll the required length of any categorical cable and add there a little extra wire for making desired cable. Carefully remove the outside jacket of the cable, be aware that there is not a single or little cut on the internal conductor, so cables do not disturb or lose signals/data. Stripe 1-11/2” of insulating sheath and avoid cutting into conductor insulation. Here you will find four twisted pairs, untwist the pairs ends and sort wires by insulation colors according to color cods Like 1 to 8, 1.White green,, 3.white orange,, 5.white blue,, 7.white brown, 8.brown. Hold wires as griped as you can and trim equally to end, leave wires only ½”. After cutting the wires equally, now you are going to attach a connector. Maintain wires in order left to right, with RJ45 tab facing downward. Do all wires extend to end? Is sheath well inside the connector? If not so Force the wires until wires completely fix in their selected areas. Now see the connector to the end, here you will see the wires with their colors fully fixed in the connector. Now you will have to crimp it with its special tool (crimper). Squeeze firmly to crimp connector on to cable end (8P).

Why it is crimped?

The answer is that cable sheath needs to be completely fixed in the connector and it will never loos long time even you move it roughly. In last you are going to finalize the procedure by testing the cables.

Does the cable work?

Check the cable by inserting the cable into Ethernet Cable Tester. Insert the cable into tester and make attention on the specific lights, each light is for each wire, if the cable in completely settled all the lights will blink. Even if a single light does not blink, I have a bad news for your, you have not crimped the wire correctly, you would need to go over the procedure again. Here is an infographic that shows how its done.   How to Make Network Cable

The Future of Networking Cables!

During the dominance period of Cat5e & Cat6 Ethernet Networking Cables, a lot of other category cables have been introduced which all seem quite promising!

The Cat6a Cable:
Cat 6a is an improved version of Cat 6, It is defined at frequencies twice that of regular Cat 6. It beats the myth that “Cat cables would never be able to support speeds above 1 Gig”, Certainly Cat6a has taken Category cabling to new heights.

The Cat6a has been made to support future needs such as the transfer of enormous quantity of data at top-notch pace, it is also structured to bear bundle cable installations up to 100 meters, It’s insulation is also much better than the previous cables far lower attenuation than the previous Cat cables”. Speculations are this cable can last for 15 to 20 years.

Cat 6a performs really well particularly in the area of alien cross-talk as compared to old Cat6 (UTP), with all these great features this cable also has some drawbacks, it’s much heavier and bigger in size its handling also require extra precautions

The Cat 7a Cable…

Cat 7a Cable; it is rated at frequencies up to 1000 MHz, its best feature is that its suitable for multiple applications in a single cable which is quite amazing. Cat 7a cable is presently a draft in the principles of ISO for channel and permanent link. TIA/EIA presently is not employed on any Cat 7a Cable standard.

Category 8 Cable…

Currently this cable is not popular but its outlook is promising, it has been specified to 2GHZ. It seems this will be a product of next generation of data centers.

This wire holds a promise for a speedy future of networking, it will enhance the speed and will allow to transport data 4 times faster, as far the shape & design is concerned, It will be a lot like its previous sister cables.

All in all with the great features and the amazing specifications & added reliability, durability & safety it looks like a real treat for data center managers.

Wi-Fi Networking…
Wi-Fi Networking is also getting into everyday needs, its use is on the rise for the past several years, it is only used as a secondary option, which is very convenient, since it does not provide the speed, which a cable can carry, cables are preferred over Wi-Fi networking. For the time-being the future of cables seems bright with the addition of these great new cables.

Wi-Fi has to jump a lot of hurdles to over power cables.

Telephone The Greatest Invention Ever!

Smart Phone Types

In this post I am going to tell you briefly about Telephone how it originated and all the twists and turns it has travelled so far. The first-ever “telephone” was invented in (1876) by Alexander Graham Bell. From since onwards it has really gone far and far in terms of technology and style & really has made human life very easy in terms of communicating with each other, possibly one of the “greatest creations ever” telephone has changed everything the way we communicate the way we interact with each other, it has allowed people the luxury of speaking and reaching out to people who live far away from them, first generation telephones converted human voice into electronic signals and transferred them from one place to other using cables.

Being the only one of its kind “technology” to carry human voice from one place to the other this invention claimed a lot of praise and acknowledgement in the (18th century), and was well received by public it really was a life changing invention of its time, due to this creation “Alexander Graham Bell” became very famous, in its early stages lots of companies started taking interest in it and started researching & started making newer models different in shapes and features, it really became a good business for companies because of its common use in every home.

Mobile Phones:

Major Role of Mobile Phones in Communication

Mobile Phones

The rising human demands for communicating, interaction and continues research on telephones enhancement, resulted in the creation of this amazing device the cell phone, it allowed people the freedom to carry a communicating device with them anywhere anytime, which was really a sense of excitement and thrill for the person sensing those features for the first time, being the first device to transfer voice data from one place to the other without wires it gained a very decent amount of popularity (And) further enhancements and improvements in it also allowed people the facility of text messaging. Due to the amazing new features it gained a lot of popularity, after these basic features mobile got a lot more versatile in terms of features high quality cameras were attached in phones the ability to play high quality music was also introduced in them People found these features quite attract full snapping pictures with their phones listening to music and all that, so with all these great features cell phone also started getting famous for entertainment purposes too.

Smart Phones…

Features of Smart Phone

Smart Phones

Although Mobile phones were very much advanced before the creation of smart phones, but they lacked the ability to provide a great browsing experience and most of the games and applications were of low quality, the introduction of iOS & android software mixed with high end Smart-phones really changed the game, in this version or should I say these type of phones you could have everything you ever wished to have in a phone, it provided all the basic and versatile features which we used on computers, it allowed you internet access anywhere with the feature of “WIFI” well almost anywhere. There are lot of benefits of wireless communications but it is also blamed that the wireless signals everywhere are serious risk to human health, and the more wireless the world goes the more risks we are going to face in terms of human health, so cables are not that bad if you consider the ultra-violent wireless rays, but as it is there are some benefits and concerns of everything, Smart phones are ruling the common human population so much that the average sales of computers have decreased a lot due to them. So these were all the turns and twists that telephone has travelled so far its different versions and various types, with the passive of time we will definitely see more changes & twists in this great invention because technology has no limits & boundaries it just travels & travels.
