Description:

The concepts of electricity, waves, and signaling, in addition to standards and codes, are essential to understanding and working safely with data cabling. This text covers theory and foundational material related to cabling in addition to practical, hands-on procedures, and coverage of standards and safety practices. The authors have written from their extensive experience to present cabling topics using a no-nonsense approach. This text uses an easy-to-understand, practical format, making it not only more interesting to the student but easier for the instructor to explain and hold the attention of the students. With pertinent lab exercises, strong real-world scenarios, and instruction on the use of common, popular tools and practices, and recommended strategies and implementations, this book provides coverage of all necessary topics for individuals interested in learning basic cabling concepts and procedures.
