    Called coaxial because the cable includes one physical channel that carries the signal, surrounded by another concentric channel, both running along the same axis, but separated by insulation. They are used for high frequency transmission of telephone, television and audio signals. Coaxial cable was invented in 1929 and first used commercially in 1941. For audio, different types of cabling are required for analog as opposed to digital transmission.
