With a minimum of 150 words, write your summary using Microsoft Word. In this chapter I learned the different types of transmission for cable types. Analog signaling is characterized by its amplitude, frequency, wavelength, and phase. Strength, cycles, distance between peaks, and progress of the waves are described respectively by these characteristics. Prior to this, I actually thought amplitude and frequency were the same. Analog signals have their cons however, because analog signals have varied and imprecise voltage, which makes them susceptible to incorrectness in transmission. Digital signals are pulses of voltages which can be described by 1s and 0s; 1 meaning a positive voltage, and 0 a negative. Network connections use analog signals only and are modulated by a modem. Forms of digital signaling are baseband and broadband transmissions. Baseband signaling are carried by one channel and uses the whole wire (Ethernet connections). Multiple transmissions can occur on one media in broadband transmissions using multiplexing (Cable television and cable internet). There are also different types of cables that function to each of their own benefits. The three cable types are fiber-optic, twisted-pair, and coaxial. Though some perform
