Bandwidth and Frequency

Discussion I3
Lesson: Bandwidth is the Currency of the Internet

Bandwidth Capacity is the peak data bit rate transmission from one point to another in a specified amount of time.
Bandwidth Speed is the rate at which data is manipulated in a computer’s processor.
Broadband is having instantaneous bandwidth greater than 1MHz; supporting data bit rates greater than 1.5 Mbps.
Bandwidth is synonymous with data transfer rate; which means the amount of data that can go from point to point in one second. Data is transferred in bits; ones and zeros. Bandwidth is measured in bits per second (bps). Skype calls throughput is between 24 and 128 bps.
Bandwidth is ususally carried over a succession of links. If one of those links slows the process, it is said to be bottlenecked. Our download speed is determined by bandwidth. Bandwidth is the difference between the highest and the lowest frequency. Frequency is measured in cycles per second; we call that unit measurement Hertz.
Frequency is named for Heinrich Hertz, who gave birth to wireless phenomenon by conclusively demonstrating the existence of electromagnetic wave frequency radio reception
and transmission. Thus, today on our AM and FM radio identify their unique position with amplitude modulation-AM and frequency modulation-FM; which is measured in Hertz-Hz.
6 MHz is the frequency for television and FM radio.
