i'm doing networking and trying to understand if the twisting in twisted pair reduce attenuation. I know that the cable can't be longer than 100 meters and the book says this
From Microsoft Windows Networking Essentials
Twisted-pair cable is the most commonly used cable type in networks today. It comes in multiple categories with different speed capabilities. A twisted-pair cable used in a network includes four pairs of copper wire. Each wire in the pair is twisted around each other, and the four pairs within a cable are then twisted around the other pairs. The four twisted pairs are then wrapped in a polyethylene or polyvinyl jacket. The number of twists per meter in these cables is different for different categories of cables. Twists in the cable help minimize both cross talk and EMI. Additionally, the number of twists per meter determines the speed and frequency capabilities of the cable. Higher speeds and frequencies allow the cable to carry larger amounts of data. However, all the twisted-pair categories have a maximum distance of 100 meters. In other words, the cable can’t be longer than 100 meters between any two components. It is possible to extend this distance by using a repeater. The repeater amplifies the signal, allowing you to run the cable another 100 meters.
So this means that if i have higher frequency i have less attenuation? I mean i thought attenuation is the distance the data goes not how much data there is, so i think the answer to my question is no, but am i right or wrong?
