1. The characteristics are different. The gigabit network cable refers to the six types of wires. Its characteristic is that there is a cross keel in the middle of the network cable to separate four pairs of twisted pairs; The wires are shielded and shielded pair by pair.
2. The logos of Gigabit and 10 Gigabit network cables are different.
A network cable is essential for connecting to a LAN. The common network cables in the local area network mainly include twisted pair, coaxial cable and optical cable. A twisted pair is a data transmission line composed of many pairs of wires. It is characterized by low price, so it is widely used, such as our common telephone lines. It is used to connect with the RJ45 crystal head. It is divided into two types: STP and UTP, and UTP is commonly used by us.
There are two standards for twisted pair termination: T568A and T568B, and there are mainly two connection methods for twisted pair: straight-through cable and crossover cable. Both ends of the crystal head of the straight-through cable follow the T568B standard. Each group of twisted-pair wires has a one-to-one correspondence at both ends, and the same color is kept consistent in the corresponding slots of the crystal head at both ends. It is mainly used to connect the Uplink port of the switch (or hub) to the ordinary port of the switch (or hub) or to connect the ordinary port of the switch to the computer network card. One end of the crystal head of the crossover cable follows the 568A standard, while the other end adopts the 568B standard, that is, the 1 and 2 of the A crystal head correspond to the 3 and 6 of the B crystal head, and the 3 and 6 of the A crystal head correspond to the 1 of the B crystal head 2. It is mainly used to connect the ordinary port of the switch (or hub) to the ordinary port of the switch (or hub) or connect the network card to the network card.
