Cable segment and repeater spacing.

  1. Hi, ive read that the max length of UTP and STP cable segments is 100m? Does this mean that a repeater is required after every signle cable segment?

    You didn't say it, but you must be referring to CAT-5 or similar systems?

    For other network types, you can go much farther, but at lower data rates.
