Can you do a count() in a table without grouping other columns

Basically what I am trying to do is get a table with all my cables, the number of conductors the cable is supposed to have, and the count of the cables in the table... To further illustrate here is the query I have

  SELECT CONDUCTOR.CABLE, TYPE_CODE.CONDUCTORS
    FROM CONDUCTOR, CABLE, TYPE_CODE
   WHERE CONDUCTOR.CABLE_ID = CABLE.CABLE_ID AND CABLE.ID = TYPE_CODE.ID
ORDER BY CABLE ASC;

The resulting table:
Cable      Conductors
1000A      3
1000A      3
1000B      3
1000B      3
1000B      3
1000C      3

what I want is this:
Cable      Conductors      Count(Cable)
1000A            3                     2
1000A            3                     2
1000B            3                     3
1000B            3                     3
1000B            3                     3
1000C            3                     1

Is this possible to do?

Try this (untested, just typed in):
 SELECT CONDUCTOR.CABLE, TYPE_CODE.CONDUCTORS,count(CONDUCTOR.CABLE) over(partition by CONDUCTOR.CABLE order by CONDUCTOR.CABLE) cable_count
    FROM CONDUCTOR, CABLE, TYPE_CODE
   WHERE CONDUCTOR.CABLE_ID = CABLE.CABLE_ID AND CABLE.ID = TYPE_CODE.ID
ORDER BY CABLE ASC;

the order by in the OVER() clause isn't necessary unless you are doing a rolling count
