CROSSOVER CABLE VS STRAIGHT CABLE

CROSSOVER CABLE VS STRAIGHT CABLE

Hello Everyone , ?today we discuss about the cables used in LAN network .

we have many devices in a network , like routers , switches , hubs , pc’s , but which cable is used to connect those devices

Category 5 cable?(Cat 5) is a?twisted pair?cable?for carrying?signals. This type of?cable?is used in?structured cabling?for?computer networks?such as?Ethernet

SAME DEVICES – CROSSOVER CABLE

DIFFERENT DEVICES -?STRAIGHT CABLE

router to router….crossover

PC to PC….crossover

switch to switch…..crossover

PC to router….crossover

PC to switch, Router to switch, PC to Hub….straight-through

But there is an exception ROUTER TO PC connect via cross cable , Bcoz they both have same?components?that’s?why they use crossover.

________________________________________________________________________________

There are two standards adopted for Cabling EIA/TIA 568A & EIA/TIA 568B.

When you use single standard (either EIA/TIA 568A or EIA/TIA 568B) on both the end of cable then the resulting cable is?STRAIGHT CABLE.

On the other hand if you use different cabling standard on the ends of cable then the resulting cable is?CROSS CABLE

You can check the image for the colour coding of standars

Thanks !
