Spectral density concept : S(f) measures how power of a random noise or signal is distributed in frequency. Thermal noise has a constant spectral density over all frequencies used in communication.

Maximum data rate of a channel Crudely, if we send the ideal 2W (2H in text notation) samples/second and can distinguish V = 2 levels, we could send k 2 2Hk = 2H*log V bits per second. This leaves unanswered how many levels V we could hope to distinguish. This is mainly limited by random noise fluctuations. Shannon developed an equation for a theoretical limit to the maximum data rate, as a function of noise, signal received power, and bandwidth.
