Name: Lacey Mowery Date: September 1, 2011 ISSC340 Week 4 Assignment (3% of Grade) APUS/Kageorgis Pre-Assessment 4 & Activity 4-1: Reviewing transmission techniques concepts The purpose of this activity is to reinforce what you have learned so far about local area network technologies. 1. True or false: Analog signals are patterns that vary continuously and form smooth waves. 2. True or false: Fiber transmits digital signals. 3. How are digital signals measured? (about 50 words) A digital signal is a continuous waveform signal used in communication or a signal that switches between levels of intensity. Broadband and fiber are the most common technologies to use digital signals. Digital signals are measured by their binary patterns (1 and 0), therefore they are measured in bits per second. 4. For each of the following, identify whether the characteristic fits broadband or baseband. a.
