Factors to consider when choosing transmission media include: cost, ease of installation and maintenance, availability, and most important, efficiency of transmission. Transmission efficiency is generally viewed as the amount of signal degradation created by the use of a particular transmission medium.
What are the 3 transmission media?
The three guided media commonly used for data transmission are twisted pair, coaxial cable, and optical fiber (Figure 4.2). We examine each of these in turn. The least expensive and most widely used guided transmission medium is twisted pair.
What is another name for transmission media?
A physical medium in data communications is the transmission path over which a signal propagates. Many different types of transmission media are used as communications channel.
Which is not an example of transmission media?
Microwave System is not a transmission medium rather than it other options is used for transmission of data over a cables as well as lines.
What are the two most important measures of performance used to assess a transmission medium?
Network performance is measured in two fundamental ways: bandwidth (also called throughput) and latency (also called delay). The bandwidth of a network is given by the number of bits that can be transmitted over the network in a certain period of time.
Which type of transmission media is the least expensive?
The least expensive and most widely used guided transmission medium is twisted pair.
