Unformatted text preview: Computer Networks and Data Communications CS642/CS447, Fall 2006 Assignment 2 1- Discuss the differences between Analog and Digital Signals. List the parameters used to represent and describe each of them.- Analog Signals: Analog signals are the original and the natural expression of information. Analog signals are defined by their properties: Frequency(f), Period Time (t), Wavelength( λ ).- Digital Signals: An electronic signal transmitted as binary code that can be either the presence(1) or absence(2) of current, high and low voltages or short pulses at a particular frequency.

Explain this approach .- Microwave Transmission: A point-to-point transmission approach which uses microwaves traveling from node to node for data transmission. It is usually carried by two microwave dishes which are aligned with each other. *Source: www.about-wireless.com/terms/microwave.htm- Infrared: A short-wave transmission technology that is relatively cheap, but cannot pass through solid objects. It used indoors in many homes and in companies for transmission and security purposes. *Source: http://www.plasma.com/remotes 3- Define and Evaluate a value for each of the communication parameters below: • The frequency of a signal that completes one cycle in 0.05 second....
