6 The major components of a telecommunications system: Hardware Communications media Communications networks Communications software Data communications providers Communications protocols Communication applications TG 4 6

7 Communications processors Hardware devices that support data transmission and reception across a telecommunications system. Modem: Device that converts signals from analog to digital and vice versa. TG 4 7

8 Multiplexer: Electronic device that allows a single communications channel to carry data transmission simultaneously from many sources. Front-end processor: A small secondary computer, dedicated solely to communication, that manages all routing communications with peripheral devices. TG 4 8

9 Communication media and channels Communication channel. Pathway for communicating data form one location to another. TG 4 9

10 Cable media: Communications channels that use physical wires or cables to transmit data and information. Broadcast ( wireless) media: Communication channels that use electromagnetic media (the airwaves ) to transmit data. Twisted-pairs wire: copper wire twisted together in pairs used for most business telephone wiring. TG 4 10

11 Coaxial cable. Insulated copper wire; used to carry high-speed data traffic and television signals. Fibber- optic cable. Thousand of very thin filaments of glass fibers, surround by cladding, that transmit information via light pulses generated by lasers. Microwave transmission. Communication channel that uses towers to send wireless signals; used for highvolume, long-distance, point-to-point communication. TG 4 11

12 Satellite transmission. Communications channel that uses orbiting satellites to send digital transmission point-to-point. Propagation delay. Brief pause between the sending and receipt of a satellite transmission. Global positioning system (GPS). A wireless system that uses satellites to enable users to determine their position anywhere on the earth. TG 4 12

13 Radio transmission. Communications channel that uses radio wave frequencies to send data directly between transmitters and receivers over short distances. Satellite radio (digital radio). Form of radio transmission that offers uninterrupted, near CDquality music beamed to your radio from space. Cellular radio technology. Use of radio transmission between cells in geographic service areas and a mobile telephone switching office, enabling wireless phone service. TG 4 13

14 Personal communication services (PCS) technology. Wireless communication technology that uses lowerpower, higher-frequency radio waves than cellular radio technology, making PCS devices effective in places where cellular devices are not. Infrared. Red light not commonly visible to human eyes; can be modulated or pulsed for conveying information. Bandwidth. The range of frequencies available in a communications channel stated in bits per second. TG 4 14

15 TG4.2 Network services Computer network. A system connecting communications media, hardware, and software needed of two or more computer systems and/ or devices. Switched lined. Telephone lines through which data transmissions can be routed or switched to their destination. Dedicated lines (leased lines). telephone line that provide a constant connection between two devices and require no switching or dialing. TG 4 15

16 Integrated services digital network (ISDN). A high-speed technology that allows users to transfer voice, video, image, and data simultaneously, over existing telephone lines. Digital subscriber line (DSL). A high-speed, digital data-transmission technology using existing analog telephone lines. TG 4 16

17 Cable modem. A modem that operates over coaxial cable and offers high-speed access to the Internet or corporate intranets. Packet switching. Data transmission technology that breaks up blocks of text into small, fixed bundles of data (packets) that are sent independently through the network. Frame relay. A data transmission technology that is faster and less expensive than packet switching. TG 4 17

18 Fibber distributed data inference (FDDI). Data transmission standard based on high-speed, high-capacity capabilities of fiber optics. Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM). Data transmission technology that uses packet switching and allows for almost unlimited bandwidth on demand. TG 4 18

19 Switched-hub technology. Data transmission technology that boots local area networks by adding an ATM-like packet-switching capability. Synchronous optical network (SONET). An interface standard for transporting digital signals over fiber-optic lines; allows the integration of transmissions from multiple vendors. T-carrier System. A digital transmission system that defines circuits that operate at different rates, all of which are multiples of the basic 64 kbps used to transport a signal voice call. TG 4 19

20 TG4.3 Network protocols Protocol. The set of rules and procedures governing transmission across a network Ethernet. The most common network protocol. TG 4 20

21 Gigabit Ethernet. The most common network protocol in large corporations, which provides data transmission speeds of one billion bits per second. Transmission control protocol / internet protocol (TCP/IP). A file transfer protocol that can send large files of information across sometimesunreliable networks with assurance that the data will arrive uncorrupted. TG 4 21

22 The International Standards Organization open systems interconnection protocol (ISO-OSI) The ISO-OSI model defines how software on different system communicates at different layers. The model has seven layers, each having its own well-defined function. Layer 1: physical layer: define the mechanism for communicating with the transmission media and interface hardware. Layer 2: data link layer: validates the integrity of the flow of data. Layer 3. network layer: defines the protocols for data routing to ensure that information arrives at the correct destination TG 4 22

23 The International Standards Organization open systems interconnection protocol (ISO-OSI) cont Layer 4: transport layer: defines the protocols for structuring messages. Layer 5: session layer : coordinates communications and maintains the session for as long as needed including security and log-on functions. Layer 6: presentation layer; defines the way data is formatted, converted and encoded Layer7: application layer. Defines the way that applications programs such as interact with the network TG 4 23

24 TG4.4 Network processing strategies Distributed processing. Network architecture that divides processing work between two or more computers, linked together in a network. Client/ server computing. Form of distributed processing in which some machines (servers) perform computing functions for end user PCs (clients). Peer- to peer processing. A type of client/ server distributed processing that allows two or more computers to pool their resources, making each computer both a client and a server TG 4 24

25 TG4.5 Types of computer networks Local area network (LAN).
