permits higher maximum transmission rates. is more efficient and it is possible to send more data through a given circuit using digital rather than analog transmission. is more secure since it is easier to encrypt. Lastly, integrating voice, video, and data on the same circuit is a lot easier with digital transmission. Sincerely,
2.The type of media that NDAS should use is a fiber optic cable since this type of media can be used for any type of network. This is a very unique type of media and can transmit files up to 75 miles and newer cable can reach more than 600 miles. Fiber optic cables are also the most secure and provide the lowest error rates. In addition, fiber optic cables have the fastest transmission speed ranging from 1 billion bits per second and 40 billion bits per second. 3.A) Bits sent per day for each officeB) # of minutes for each city’s modem to transmit invoices
C) File transfer time to TampaD) No, it would take 4.81 hours to transmit the total # of bits to Tampa. Hence this wouldnot fix between 5 and 6 pm.
4) No. If Tampa has to process all the incoming invoices as well as the outgoing invoices, then the 28,800 bps modem will become a bottleneck. Since 8.99 hours < 9.63 hours, it will be better for regional offices to send to all other regional offices and Tampa.. Tampa should not receive all centrally and then re-distribute again to regional offices. 5) A single network with the capacity to carry a combination of data, voice and video traffic is called a convergent network. There are many advantages of a convergent networkSavingsin phone costs that relates to long-distance and international calls. VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) is a common feature in converged networks.Flexibilityand scalability of the network structure -- you can modify computers with ease without the involvement of phone companies.Simplifyand integrate IT systems. It’s easier to upgrade one “super network,” rather than to handle different types of networks. If you have phone issues, you call on your IT department to fix it -- not your old phone company.
