    Default 1000base-cx cable type

    Hi,

    I read in a book that 1000base-cx uses a fiber optic cable but other books say that 1000base-cx use a special coax cable.

    I read on the technotes that 1000base-cx use a special coax cable.
    Which cable is correct?

    Btw im reading about the protocols now.

    Any advice for studying protocols?

    Thanks.


    Michel

    as a supplement.

    on the cbt nuggets video they say that 1000base-cx uses a 150 STP cable.

    Exactly.

    Yes, install, configure, and use them.
