Wireless Data Transmission
Data transmission, Digital transmission, or Digital communications is the physical transfer of data (a digital bit stream) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel. The data is represented as an electromagnetic signal, such as an electrical voltage, radio wave or microwave.
Wireless telecommunications is the transfer of information between two or more points that are physically not connected. Distances can be short, a few meters as in television remote control; or long ranging from thousands to millions of kilometers for deep-space radio communications. It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. The term "wireless" came into public usage to refer to a radio receiver or transceiver (a dual purpose receiver and transmitter device), establishing its usage in the field of wireless telegraphy early on; now the term is used to describe modern wireless connections such as in cellular networks and wireless broadband Internet. It is also used in a general sense to refer to any type of operation that is implemented without the use of wires, such as "wireless remote control".
