CS 168 Computer Networks Jannotti Homework 1 Due: 20 February 2010, 4pm Problem 1 Sec. 2, prob. 2 A noiseless channel can carry an arbitrarily large amount of information, no matter how often it is sampled. Just send a lot of data per sample. For the 4kHz channel, make 8000 samples/sec. If each sample is 16 bits, the channel can send 128 kbps. If each sample is 1024 bits, the channel can send 8.2 Mbps. The key word here is “noiseless”. With a normal 4kHz channel, the Shannon limit would not allow this. Sec. 2, prob. 4 20dB = S/N ratio of 100. log 2 (101) is approximately 6.658. So Shannon’s limit is approximately 19.975 kbps. But the Nyquist limit is 2*3 kHz = 6kHz, giving 6 Kb/s. With 1 bit per sample, the bottleneck is the Nyquist limit, giving a maximum channel capacity of 6 Kb/s. Sec. 2, prob. 29 A sample of 125 μ sec corresponds to 8000 samples/sec. According to Nyquist theorem, this is the sampling frequency needed to capture all the information in a 4kHz channel, such as a telephone channel.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• 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.
