1. Distinction of anti-interference
The unshielded network cable is mainly used in the environment without interference, so the shielded network cable is relatively used in the environment with interference. The unshielded network cable has no shielding layer, its diameter is relatively small, and it also saves space. When used in an environment without interference, it is not only convenient to use, but also saves space when wiring.
2. Transmission speed difference
The transmission speed of unshielded network cable is actually faster than that of shielded network cable. If the spatial structure of the wiring is close to the interference sources such as the air conditioner, shielded network cables should be used.
The difference between a single shielded network cable and a double shielded network cable is that the double shielded network cable has one more layer of shielding than the single shielded network cable. In fact, it can be seen from their names. The transmission speed of the double shielded network cable is slower than that of the single shielded network cable.
3. Price differentiation
In terms of price, the price of unshielded network cable is cheaper than that of shielded network cable. The price of the network cable is not entirely determined by the transmission speed. Shielded network cable exists to deal with the environment with interference sources, so its cost is relatively high and it is difficult to wire.
