While looking for different types of network cable, I came across this term called 25-core cable. You can get numerous examples putting the term '25-core cable' in any search-engine. But till date haven't found a single document which explains what this 25-core cable is or 16-core or 8-core ?
By a single core does it mean a single LAN cable which connect at both ends to a single RJ-45 connectors . If I'm assuming it right it would mean having 25 connectors at each end. This would be from taking bunch of cables from a say a 'network closet' to going doing to a basement or something which if I understand is called 'backhaul networks'.
Am I right in assuming then anything apart from a single core LAN cable is for backhaul networks or is there any other scenario where such multiple 'cores' cable is used.
Update :- meant a 25 'pair' cable and NOT 'core'. I did remember reading about it though.
