  • The Internet has changed our world. Communications and commerce move instantaneously across borders and around the world. Anyone can publish their wares, their ideas and their desires. Chapter 3 will present a brief introduction into where the Internet came from, how it is structured and describe ways in which the Internet is used.

    2. 2. Communications
    3. 3. Communications <ul><li>Communication is the transmission of a signal from a sender to a receiver by way of a medium. </li></ul><ul><li>The signal contains a message composed of data and information. </li></ul><ul><li>For communication to be effective, both sender and receiver must understand the signals and agree on the way they are to be interpreted. </li></ul>
    4. 4. An Overview of Telecommunications <ul><li>Telecommunications: the electronic transmission of signals for communications </li></ul><ul><li>Telecommunications medium: anything that carries an electronic signal and interfaces between a sending device and a receiving device </li></ul>
    5. 5. Telecommunications
    6. 6. Telecommunications <ul><li>It starts with a sending unit (1), such as a person, a computer system, a terminal, or another device, that originates the message. </li></ul><ul><li>The sending unit transmits a signal (2) to a telecommunications device (3). </li></ul><ul><li>The telecommunications device performs a number of functions, which can include converting the signal into a different form or from one type to another. The telecommunications device then sends the signal through a medium(4). </li></ul>
    7. 7. Telecommunications <ul><li>A telecommunications medium is anything that carries an electronic signal and interfaces between a sending device and a receiving device. </li></ul><ul><li>The signal is received by another telecommunications device (5) that is connected to the receiving computer (6). </li></ul><ul><li>The process can then be reversed and another message can go back from the receiving unit (6) to the original sending unit (1). </li></ul>
    8. 8. Telecommunications <ul><li>Data Communication – A specialized subset of telecommunications that refers to the electronic collection, processing, and distribution of data – typically between computer system hardware devices. </li></ul>

    10. 10. Channel Bandwidth <ul><li>Telecommunications professionals consider the capacity of the communications path or channel when they recommend transmission media for a business </li></ul><ul><li>Channel bandwidth: the rate at which data is exchanged over a communication channel </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Usually measured in bits per second (bps) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Narrowband channels provide rates up to 64K BPS (twisted pair) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Broadband begins with 1.5 MBS </li></ul></ul>
