coaxial cable,
1. an electric cable consisting of a tube of insulated conducting materials surrounding an insulated central conductor that has the same axis. The coaxial cable is used for transmitting many telegraph, telephone, and television signals at the same time. It attenuates high frequencies less than ordinary two-wire cable. Coaxial cables work in pairs: one carries signals in one direction, while the other handles signals in the opposite direction.
2. a large cable containing a circular arrangement of single coaxial cables surrounding interstitial wires at the center, all insulated from one another, capable of conducting simultaneously several video circuits and more than 1,500 telephone circuits.
