Network Accessories

Network accessories refer to various hardware and components used in networking environments to facilitate connectivity, communication, and efficient data transmission. These accessories complement networking devices like routers, switches, and modems, enabling the setup, maintenance, and optimization of network infrastructure. Here are some common network accessories:

  • Cables and Connectors:

    Ethernet cables (Cat5e, Cat6, Cat7) for wired connections.

    Fiber optic cables for high-speed and long-distance connections.

    Coaxial cables for cable TV and internet connections.

    RJ45 connectors, fiber optic connectors, and coaxial connectors for terminating cables.

  • Patch Panels and Wall Outlets:

    Patch panels serve as central termination points for network cables.

    Wall outlets provide access points for connecting devices to the network.

  • Network Adapters and NICs:
