An old, but still-used designation for a twisted-pair cable with braided shield. However, the designation does not specify whether the shield type refers to individual pairs or the cable as a whole.
New and more precise designations are set forth in the ISO/IEC 11801 (2002) E standard and take the form of XX/YZZ, as follows:
XX indicates the overall shield
Y indicates the shielding of the individual pairs
ZZ is the twisting type
Example: An S/FTP is a Screened Foiled Twisted Pair (braided shield for the cable and foil shield for the twisted pairs).
