Disadvantages of Coaxial Cable
Coaxial cable is a type of cable that has an inner conductor surrounded by a tubular insulating layer, surrounded by a tubular conducting shield. Many coaxial cables also have an insulating outer sheath or jacket. It is used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals.
However, as a consumer, you can easily point out several disadvantages of the coaxial cable. The weakest point is its vulnerability to signal quality loss. Due to the signal loss as the length of the cable grows and to avoid signal degradation, repeater stations have to be used which will cause a large amount of extra costs. Another disadvantage is that it has a much lower overall bandwidth. While the cost is a moderately expensive, because both installation and maintenance cost of a coaxial cable is high due to its thickness and stiffness. In addition, the inherent flaws of coaxial cable and its sensitivity to disruption are an aggravating cause of its poor service performance.
