1. A long-distance data transmission system transmits data signals as electrical voltages using copper wire. What is the relationship between the bandwidth of the copper wire and the bit rate at which the data can be transmitted?
2. This is the time required for one bit to be transferred from one end to another. It is also called the 'delay' between the sender and the recipient. Measured in milliseconds.
3. This is the rate at which the signal changes (per second) in the communication medium. 2 kBd means 2000 signal changes per second.
4. This is the number of bits that can be transmitted per second. 9,600 bps means that 9,600 bits of data can be transferred per second.
5. This refers to the set of rules that need to be established before transmission can take place.
6. A ______ of 2 Mbps indicates that there is 2 megabits of information lying in the communication medium.
7. a time delay between the moment something is initiated and the moment its effect begins is called ____________
8. In this transmission, more than one series of data bits can be transmitted at the same time by using several cables in place of a single cable.
9. As wires or cables get longer, parallel transmission can suffer from this effect:
10. _______ can operate either in synchronous mode (with a mutual clock) or asynchronous mode (no mutual clock)
11. _____ = baud rate x bits per baud
12. The unit of measurement used for bit rate is vs (volts per second)
13. Baud rate is essentially the exact same thing as bit rate.
14. Bandwidth is also known as the 'useful' bit rate, also known as the information rate.
15. The bit rate and the bandwidth are NOT directly proportional to each other.
