1. Twisted Pair
2. Coavial Cable
3. Fiber Optics

 Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 22 Nov 2004
Dear Amit,

With exception of coax, I would say that the twisted pair and fiber are both most suitable, depending on the actual situation: required bandwidth, distances, EMI susceptibility.

Comparing the characteristics would be way beyond the scope of the helpdesk answer. Please browse this site for more info on the characteristics.
