NDAS Case Study: Chapter 3Megan GrahamNahid BariShravani Mandalaparty Richard Mendoza1. President Coone is baffled about how digital information from a computer can be sentover a network connection. Prepare a brief position paper for management explaining theway information is transferred from one computer to another over digital lines. Keep itsimple. Be sure to describe the types of devices used in data transmission. Includecomments on the role of data compression in increasing transmission rates. Justify theobservation that as a general rule, it is best to purchase the fastest devices yourcommunications lines can support.To: ManagementFrom: Team 2There are plenty of ways to get digital information from one computer to another. You can start with the physical layer of which is the network hardware including the clients, servers and circuits. The circuits have two different meanings but for this we are talking about the logicalcircuit in which is used to connect two devices, which refers to the transmission of characteristics of the connections. When talking about the circuits there are two different types of data that can come through a circuit. The two are digital and analog. Digital and analog data help each other get the message to the destination. “Data can be converted from one form into the other, for example, digital computer data can be transmitted over an analog telephone circuitby using a modem”. A modem is a transmitter from the sender that translates the information so the receiver can uncode the data once it is received. The modem from the sender’s computer translates the digital information to an analog which travels to the receivers modem and is received as the digital data that it once started as. With both of these the transmission may be used both users have to agree on the symbols and rates that will be used; which means the pattern of light, radio wave, or electricity which will be used how many symbols will be send overa circuit. During the process of trying to transmit and translate the data over networks there are plenty of steps to come along with it. The first step is circuit configuration. With the circuit configuration there are two types. Point-to-point and multipoint. Point-to-point configuration is when there is one computer to another computer. The multipoint configuration is many computers connected to one circuit. Circuits can transmit data from one flow of direction or both
