TECH TERMS - ADSL

| No Comments
Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for TechTerm_Image 2008.png

What is ASDL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line)?

Definition: ADSL is a form of Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Internet service. ADSL provides greater bandwidth for downloads at the expense of upload speeds. ADSL is the most common form of DSL used in home networking.

ADSL is designed to support the typical home user who frequently downloads large amounts of data from Web sites and P2P networks but upload relatively less often. ADSL works by allocating a majority of the available phone line frequencies for communication of downstream traffic.

In other respects, ADSL possesses all of the characteristics one associates with DSL, including "high-speed" service, an "always on" combination of voice and data support, and availability and performance that is limited by physical distance. ADSL is technically capable of up to 6 Mbps (roughly 6000 Kbps), but ADSL customers in practice obtain 2 Mbps or lower for downloads and up to 512 Kbps for uploads.

TECH TERMS - BANDWITH

| No Comments
Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for TechTerm_Image 2008.png

What is Bandwith?

DEFINITION:  In computer networks, bandwidth is often used as a synonym for data transfer rate - the amount of data that can be carried from one point to another in a given time period (usually a second).

This kind of bandwidth is usually expressed in bits (of data) per second (bps). Occasionally, it's expressed as bytes per second (Bps).

A modem that works at 57,600 bps has twice the bandwidth of a modem that works at 28,800 bps.

In general, a link with a high bandwidth is one that may be able to carry enough information to sustain the succession of images in a video presentation.

It should be remembered that a real communications path usually consists of a succession of links, each with its own bandwidth.

If one of these is much slower than the rest, it is said to be a bandwidth bottleneck.

In electronic communication, bandwidth is the width of the range (or band) of frequencies that an electronic signal uses on a given transmission medium.

In this usage, bandwidth is expressed in terms of the difference between the highest-frequency signal component and the lowest-frequency signal component.

Since the frequency of a signal is measured in hertz (the number of cycles of change per second), a given bandwidth is the difference in hertz between the highest frequency the signal uses and the lowest frequency it uses.

A typical voice signal has a bandwidth of approximately three kilohertz (3 kHz); an analog television (TV) broadcast video signal has a bandwidth of six megahertz (6 MHz) -- some 2,000 times as wide as the voice signal.

I guess you can say . . . Google had the flu . . . and they used modern technological fixes (or Health Care) to cure the problem (or illness).  :-)
