What is the full form of STP?

  • Shielded Twisted Pair Cable


What does STP mean?


STP cable is one special type of copper telephone wiring which is used in some business installations. An outer covering or shield cable is added to the ordinary twisted-pair telephone wires and the shield functions are used as a ground. The more common kind of cable that is installed to your home is unshielded twisted pair.

As we know that the STP cable is similar to the unshielded twisted pair cable. STP cables are costlier compared to the UTP but have the advantages of being capable of supporting higher transmission rates across longer distances.
