Wired, wireless or Fibre? Understanding bandwidth for 2018...
We live in a world Gigahertz, Megaflops and Terabytes. New
connectivity standards are appearing almost hourly and, as an Internet obsessed
culture, our demands for data are increasing exponentially. Can you honestly
explain every term that is used when talking about data and then choose a
suitable carrier for it? if the answer is no you're probably not alone! In this
course, we'll start by looking at binary data and it’s terminology. We'll then
use simple bandwidth calculations to understand how much bandwidth each system
needs, and compare those bandwidth requirements with the capacities available
from common carriers. Students will leave with a clear understanding of data,
bandwidth and capacity. They will also be able to assess and apply bandwidth
figures to real-world situations.
