Signal loss is an issue in both copper and fiber cabling infrastructures. This is represented by the percentage of signal lost at the destination based on the initial transmission sent. In other words, the signal received is not as strong as the signal sent.
Signal loss is also called attenuation and it increases as the signal travels through the media, which can include:
- Copper (electrical signals)
- Fiber (light beams)
- Wireless (radio waves)
The amount of signal loss depends on a number of different criteria, including:
- End connectors . . .
