    communication channels and types communication channels and types Presentation Transcript

    • Importance of channels in communication and types of channels
    • Contents Introduction Communication model Design factors Types of communication channels Guided(wired) channels Unguided(wireless) channels Conclusion
    • Introduction Communication channel is a connection between transmitter and receiver through which Data can be transmitted. Communication channel also called as communication media or transmission media
    • Communication model Communication Transmitter Receiver channel
    • Design Factors Bandwidth - Higher bandwidth gives higher data rate Transmission impairments - eg. attenuation Interference Number of receivers in guided media - More receivers introduces more attenuation
    • Types of Communication channel Communication channel Unguided Guided (wired) (wireless) Twisted Coaxial Optical Terrestrial Satellite Broadcast pair cable fiber microwave microwave radio• Other types are Under Water Acoustic Channels, Storage Channels like magnetic tapes, magnetic disks etc.
    • Twisted-pair cable One of the wires carries signal, the other is used only as a ground reference. Number of twists per unit length determines the quality of the cable.
    • Types in twisted pair cables Shielded twisted-pair cable Unshielded twisted-pair cable Categories of Twisted-Pair Cables  Category 1- 0.1 Mbps  Category 2- 2 Mbps  Category 3- 10 Mbps  Category 4- 20 Mbps  Category 5- 100 Mbps  Category 6- 200 Mbps  Category 7- 600 Mbps
    • Coaxial cable• Used for both analog and digital signals• Effectively used at higher data rate and higher bandwidth• For analog signals need amplifiers every few km• For digital signals requires repeater every 1km
    • Refraction and reflectionOptical fiber
    • Propagation modes
    • Terrestrial microwave Requires fewer repeaters Use a parabolic dish to focus a narrow beam. 1-40GHz frequencies
    • Satellite communication Receives on one frequency, and transmits on another frequency  eg. uplink 5.925-6.425 GHz & downlink 3.7-4.2 GHz• Height 35,784km• Spaced at least 3-4 apart
    • Broadcast Radio Radio frequency range is 3kHz to 300GHz Use broadcast radio of 30MHz - 1GHz, for:  FM radio  UHF and VHF television Is a unidirectional Suffers from multipath interference  Reflections from land, water, other objects Are used for multicasts communications, such as radio and television, and paging system.
    • Conclusion Communication channel is essential for communication systems. The transmission characteristics are important in selecting channel because they directly affect the communication quality. Different types of communication channels have different transmission characteristics and costs, they are used in different applications.
