Definitions for "Shielded Twisted Pair"
A thin diameter network wire, wrapped with a metal sheath for extra protection against electrical interference.
Two-pair wire medium used in the transmission of several different protocols. STP is capable of supporting CDDI for link distances of up to 100 meters. These wires have a layer of shielded insulation.
Cable which has a metal sleeve covering two shielded twisted copper wires, which allows protection from electromagnetic interference, whereas the UTP, although of similar design and function, allows no interference protection. See Unshielded Twisted Pair.
