It is just two insulated wires twisted together. any data communication cables and normal telephone cables are this type. Shielded twisted pair(STP) differs from UTP in that it has a foil jacket that helps prevent crosstalk and noise from outside source. In data communications there is a cable type called FTP (foil shielded pairs) which consists of four twisted pair inside one common shield (made of aluminium foil). Source:

Question: Why we use cross cable to connect same devices?

some criterion are forwarded normally. Those that fail the test are dropped. Source:
Question: What does 10Base-T mean?

Answer: The 10 refers to the data transfer rate, in this case is 10Mbps. The word Base refers to base band, as oppose to broad band. T means twisted pair, which is the cable used for that network. Source:
Question: What is a VLAN? What does VLAN provide?

Answer: VLAN ? Virtual Local Area Network<br>Vlan is a logical grouping or segmenting a network connected to administratively defined ports on a switch, they provide Broadcast control, Security and Flexibility.<br> Source:

Question: Difference between bit rate and baud rate

Answer: Bit rate is the number of bits transmitted during one second whereas baud rate refers to the number of signal units per second that are required to represent those bits.
baud rate = bit rate / N
where N is no-of-bits represented by each signal shift.

Question: What is meant by Symmentric Multiprocessing (SMP)?

Answer: It treats all processors as equal. Any processor can do the work of any other processor. Applications are divided into threads that can run concurrently on any available processor. Any processor in the pool can run the OS kernel and execute user-written threads. Source:
