Coaxial Cable

A type of electrical cable consisting of a single, central copper wire surrounded by a separate, insulated woven metal shield. Both the central wire and the metal shield function as signal carriers, creating a signal loop. Coaxial cables are used for cable television, as well as for computer Ethernet or broadband networks. Coaxial cable is often abbreviated coax (pronounced "KO-ax").
