Example text

The velocity of propagation in metallic conductors, twisted-pair and coaxial, is about two-thirds that of the free space velocity of propagation of electromagnetic radiation and is about 200 000 km/s. Optical fibre was specifically developed to handle even higher transmission rates with lower losses than are possible with coaxial conductors. Digital transmission is achieved by modulating data onto an optical carrier. There are two main wavelengths where transmission loss is extremely low and which are used with optical fibre systems.

Optical fibre’s inherently low loss enables propagation over several tens of km without signals requiring any regeneration, which is an appreciably greater spacing than is possible using coaxial conductors. Coaxial-pair conductors (and twisted-pairs) suffer from varying degrees of interference, but this is non-existent in fibre systems. For secure transmission, coaxial or optical media are preferred since they radiate very little, if at all. Radio is inherently insecure and twisted-pair is easily monitored.

In addition the choice of seven layers has sprung from the following: 1. Only sufficient layers have been agreed such that each layer represents a different and unique function within the model. 2. A layer may be thought of as the position of a related group of functions within the model which ranges from one specific to the user application at one end to one involving the transmission or data bits at the other. 6 OSI Reference Model.
