coaxial cable

   Abbreviated coax, pronounced "[co-ax]." A high-capacity cable used in networking that contains a solid inner copper conductor surrounded by plastic insulation, and an outer braided copper or foil shield.
   Coaxial cable is used for broadband and baseband communications networks (and for cable television), because the cable is usually free from external interference and permits high transmission rates over long distances.
