Twisted Pair

Copper cabling, unshielded, in which a nominal level of interference is mitigated based on the twisting of two conductors (a pair) around each other for the entire length of the cable. Twisted pair cables come in even-numbered conductor quantities, such an eight-conductor for Ethernet cabling. Conductors are each individually sheathed in plastic and conductor cores can either be solid or multiple strands of thinner cabling.
