It is not uncommon for questions on NE to focus on (or boil down to) the pure physics of how things work and just what they are. Examples:
- How is data flow in a twisted pair cable?
- twisted pair vs single ended usb
- Is fiber optic Digital or analog? optical signal is digital or analog?
- Is the `twisted-pair` line transfer `digital data` and `ADSL` line transfer the `modulated electrical signal`?
Note that such questions are abstracted from the enterprise vs consumer-grade context (the things in question are used in both contexts, and everywhere). The person asking the question could have reasons for asking it coming from either context, or a totally different context e.g. engineering studies.
In such scenarios, does the actual context being home/consumer-grade disqualifies the question from being on-topic?
