  • What connectivity do games consoles need to have to allow the Smiths to play games with each other in the house?

bandwidth and latency
Bandwidth and Latency
  • Bandwidth commonly measured in bits/second is the maximum rate that information can be transferred
  • Latency the delay between the sender and the receiver decoding it

together they impact on network performance and game play therefore a wired connection to the router might be better than a wireless one for game playing purposes.

Identify other online activities which might suffer from the higher latency and greater loss of data associated with a WiFiconnection

e.g. video streaming

online telephony
