UTP

(Unshielded Twisted Pair)- The most common type of copper cablingthat is used in computer networks, it is composed of un-shielded pairs of color-coded wires twisted together to prevent Electromagnetic interference. The twisted pairs creat a magnetic field that performs the function of the missing shielding, albeit to a lower extent.
