Answer
Hi Wasim,

Many thanks for your question.

The 8 wired cables I think you refer to are Ethernet
cables.
There's quite a lot of info on these cables so I've taken
the liberty, I hope you don't mind as I'll simply run over
my character limit, of pointing you to a very good website
explaining just about everything you'd need to know.
