When to use Shielded Ethernet Cables

Shielded ethernet cables allow for an additional layer of protection between the network connection and outside interference caused by "alien cross talk" or "noise", that can occur between cables that run alongside each other. Complex network environments, such as larger businesses with a lot of heavy machinery, elevators and flourescent lights, generate a lot of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and this is where a shielded cable comes in to protect and enhance the cable signal.
