Topics
  • Guided Transmission Media
  • Wireless Transmission
  • Communication Satellites
transmission media
Transmission Media
  • Physical layer: Transport a raw bit stream
  • Physical media
    • Guided media
      • Information transmitted on wires by varying some physical property such as voltage or current
      • Copper wire, fiber optics
    • Unguided media
      • Information transmitted wirelessly by electromagnetic waves
      • Radio, lasers
guided media
Guided Media
  • Twisted pair
  • Coaxial cable
  • Fiber optics
twisted pair cable
Twisted Pair Cable
  • Oldest, but still most common
  • Two twisted insulated copper wires
    • Why twisted?

To reduce electrical interference

  • Telephone system
  • Repeater needed for longer distances
    • Repeater: device that extends the distance a signal can travel by regenerating the signal
  • Adequate performance at low cost
twisted pair
Twisted Pair

(a) Category 3 UTP.

(b) Category 5 UTP.

coaxial cable
Coaxial Cable
  • Better shielding than twisted pairs
    • Span longer distances at higher speeds
    • Lower error rate
  • Widely used for
    • Cable TV
    • WAN (Internet over cable)
fiber optics
Fiber Optics
  • Light
    • Electromagnetic energy traveling at 3108 m/s
    • Refraction
    • Critical angle
    • Reflection
fiber optics9
Fiber Optics

(a) Three examples of a light ray from inside a silica fiber impinging on the air/silica boundary at different angles.

(b) Light trapped by total internal reflection.

fiber optics11
Fiber Optics
  • Optical transmission system:
    • Light source: LED or lasers
    • Transmission medium: fiber optic cable
    • Detector: converting detected light to electrical pulse
  • Propagation modes
    • Multimode
      • Step-index
      • Grade-index
    • Single mode

Modes

  • The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2004
single mode
Single Mode
  • All beams received “together” and signal can be combined with little distortion
  • Widely used for longer distance
  • More expensive
  • Currently 50 Gbps for 100 km w/o amplification
fiber optics vs copper wire
Fiber Optics Vs. Copper Wire
  • Pros
    • Higher bandwidth
    • Less attenuation  less repeater needed (about every 50 km, copper 5 km)
    • Noise resistance: no interference, surge, ...
    • Thin and lightweight
    • Excellent security
  • Cons
    • Fiber interface costs more
    • Fragility
    • Unidirectional
wireless transmission
Wireless Transmission
  • Electromagnetic Spectrum
    • Electron movement creates electromagnetic wave
    • Frequency: number of oscillations per second of a electromagnetic wave measured in Hertz (Hz)
    • Wavelength: distance between two consecutive maxima (or minima)
    • Speed of light: C = 3  108 m/sec
      • C = wavelength  frequency, i.e., C = λf
electromagnetic spectrum
