Infrared transmission This is a method of wireless transmission that uses part of the infrared spectrum to transmit and receive signals. Infrared transmissions take advantage of a frequency range (Infrared frequencies are higher than those of microwaves, but lower than those of visible light ) just below that of visible light, and they usually require a line-of-sight connection between transmitter and receiver. This technology allows computing devices to communicate via short-range wireless signals. With infrared, computers can transfer files and other digital data bi-directionally. The infrared transmission technology used in computers is similar to that used in consumer product remote control units. Installation and Usage Computer infrared network adapters both transmit and receive data through ports on the rear or side of a device. Infrared adapters are installed in many laptops and handheld personal devices. In Microsoft Windows, infrared connections can be created through the same method as other

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
