Network cord wires

A wire is a single strand of metal capable of transmitting power or data from one area to another. Wires are almost always protected in a plastic covering that is sometimes color coded to aid in identification. The picture shows an example of a Cat 5 cable stripped with the wires exposed. As can be seen in the image, a cable is generally composed of multiple wires.
