Ethernet Cable

Overview

Ethernet cables are also referred to as network cables and can be classified into straight-through cables and crossover cables according to the connection sequence of the copper cores in the cables.

The Ethernet service interfaces on the equipment support Auto MDI-X to the straight-through cables and crossover cables. Hence, you can connect either type of the network cables to the Ethernet service interfaces as required.

Ethernet cables need to be made on site.
