Today’s world is indeed a wired world, and despite the uses of wireless technology, many modern electronic devices can be often are plugged into each other for a secure connection and transmission of data. Many different types of cables can be found today, from cat5 cables and cat6 cables all the way to bulk fiber optic cables to USB cables, and more.
