information too slow because that means that you aren’t able to send as much information over a specific period of time. This is called the bitrate. It defines the number of bits that are transmitted each second. The sender will send four bit message to the receiver. They send it at a one bit per second rate, or 1 bps. They both understand that the encoded message is four bits long and answers four specific questions. Transmitting digital information in the form of states of an or off or ones or zeros can be done in a lot of different ways. There are three that you will encounter whenever you connect to the internet to any type of network, radio, electrical, and optical. Most homes and offices use Wi-Fi to connect to networks and to the internet. Wi-Fi networks are based on radio waves that transmit binary states based on alternating the radio waves that send information. By encoding information into binary data, it is then translated into these varying radio waves and can be transmitted, received, and converted back to binary data, and decoded into its original format. Wi-Fi and radio communications are great for short distances.

    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.

    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.
