In this version, individual conductor pairs are twisted, as in other TP cables, but they are not encased in a shield. There is also no overall shielding that shields the entire conductor strand. There is only the outer jacket over the twisted wires. Because this cable has no shielding, it is thinner and more flexible than others. However, the characteristic values are also worse.
