Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from surrounding cables and equipment can diminish the quality of your network. Your cable choice plays a big role in reducing EMI. However, there are different environments that require different types of cables.
Some environments are more suited to STP cables which have additional shielding material to cancel any external interference that may be introduced at any point in the path of the cable. Using STP cables ensure that you get the maximum bandwidth from your cabling even if the external condition is less than ideal.
This cable is very much like UTP cables, with the addition of foil underneath the main cable jacket. Another common name for this cable is FTP. F/UTP or U/FTP cables are common in 10GBaseT applications. An overall foil shield (F) with unscreened(unshielded) twisted pairs (UTP) or unshielded (U) With Foiled Twisted pair(FTP).
